The Philly Beer School offers beer classes, tastings, and brewing programs in a related atmosphere. Whether you are looking to learn about the great big world of beer, or want to become a home brewer, we have a course or class designed for you.
The school was founded in 2006 after a master beer brewer attended a course at the Wine School of Philadelphia. The school’s director, Keith Wallace, was a former winemaker, and as the saying goes “it takes a lot of beer to make wine.” The idea of opening a beer school become a passion project for Keith and his team. A few short years later, the Philly Beer School’s curriculum was crafted and it’s facilities built. Originally located in the Fairmount neighborhood, the school followed the Wine School into the Rittenhouse neighborhood in 2011.
