What we do

  1. Teach short and long-term courses on beer and brewing for brewers of all experience levels.  For more information, check out our "Courses" page.
  2. Host weekly BTSB Experiences - come on Fridays and join your friends and colleagues for a guided tasting of in-house brews to finish off your day.  To see our current tap list, check out our "TASTE" page.
  3. Manage Open House Brewing sessions - experienced brewers can come and use our equipment, ingredients, and space to brew all-grain batches of beer without the hassle of using up all of that space at home.  See our "BREW" page for more info.
  4. Consult with individuals or organisations to brew special, one-off batches of beer for private events.  See our "BREW" page for more info.
  5. Host Private Events - come use our space for corporate meetings, trainings, and team building, or even birthday parties, fundraisers, and other special occasions.  We can arrange private brewing classes for your group or packages that include in-house draft beer.  See our "EVENTS" page for more info.

OPen House brewing

Do you already brew, but don't have the space at home?  No worries.  That's a common limitation in Hong Kong.  You can use our gear, our ingredients, and our space to brew, ferment, and package your own recipes.  We have the capacity to brew anything from 10 liter to 20 liter recipes and our staff will be on hand to help make sure that your beer will turn out just right.

Founders Justin and Marisa Jackson


Back to School Brewing Ltd was founded in 2016 with the purpose of promoting community and craft beer education in Hong Kong.  Having lived in Hong Kong for six years, the founders have seen the growth of craft beer in this city and aim to provide a space where people can get together to learn more about beer in an engaging way and in a comfortable setting.

 Justin started brewing at home in Hong Kong five years ago and has been hooked ever since.  After 10 years of teaching Physics he enrolled in a professional brewing course at the American Brewer's Guild and started planning to open Back to School Brewing.  In January 2018 he began his professional brewing career with Gweilo Beer in Fo Tan.

Having opened their doors in February 2017, Back to School Brewing now offers on-going craft brewing workshops, beer tastings, and a comprehensive curriculum for experienced home brewers.

Please visit us for our tastings and brewing workshops and enjoy the blog posts and instructional videos related to beer and brewing!
