Father's Day brewing class


Buy your dad a six-pack and he's happy for a couple of hours - teach him to brew and he'll be happy until his dying day. Grab your dad a ticket to the Father's Day brewing class where he will learn all about the wonder of beer, and taste quite a few along the way.

Father's Day at Hotel Lindrum
