SPENT GRAIN BREADMAKING

Grainbakers is a pop-up breadmaking school taught at breweries.

Grainbakers offers spent grain bread-making classes and spent grain hot buttered pretzel-making classes at your favorite brewery. Our classes are for everyone from the rookie baker and the beer geek or home brewer to the bread-making enthusiast. At the end of the brewer’s day, we will use their fresh, spent grain and work it into a stunning boule of bread. Classes are offered all over the United States in beer-centric cities. If you have a brewery, invite us to visit. In the first half of 2024, Caitlin visited 30+ breweries, made over 1,500 breads with guests and traveled over 15,000 miles!

Let's RISE TOGETHER!

From Grain to Bread

We’ll talk about craft beer and a little science,
how beer is made, and sustainability in craft beer.

You'll learn what brewer's spent grain is,

Why spent grain is a superfood

and how to work it into bread.

 

You'll leave with your bread in its first rise

and bake it as soon as you get home.

 

You'll laugh. You'll meet new people and
support a small and independent brewery.

Adults-Only Fun

Since the class is held in an industrial area of a manufacturing brewery, the class is for adults only.

 

This class is good for:

A solo outing 

Couples

A first date

Your 1,000th date

A Girls’ night out

A work team outing for 12 or more

A Birthday activity for 4 - 12 people

“My friend booked a class for four of us for my friend’s birthday. It was a brewery I had never been to before. The class was informational, followed by a fun and messy demonstration time. We all left with our own ready-to-bake loaf in its first rise. It was ready to pop in the oven when I got home and made a pretty great bread for grilled cheese the next day.” - Jessika G.

RISE TOGETHER

When you arrive at the brewery, please check in, grab a beer, and relax with friends. Class begins with a lesson, tour and then it’s time for grain, water, yeast & salt. Make artisan bread and great memories with friends.
