McFleshman’s Beer Academy

McFleshman’s Beer Academy is a series of fun instructional conversations that aspire to be educational and promise to be engaging. Classes offered are in either Brewing and Beer History, or Brewing and Beer Science. Each 2-hour class includes one 16 oz pour of standard-priced McF Beer, four beer samples during the class, a McF branded beer glass, and notes for the information provided. If you are looking for a great way to gather with friends and have spirited conversations around unique topics and to enjoy McF’s finest brews, then the McF Beer Academy is what you have been waiting for!

Heater is on so come enjoy this one “spring day” before it’s over!

Don’t forget about Firkin Thirst-day tomorrow. Secret beer revealed tomorrow! Stay tuned!

Come meet Joel! He's our beertender of the month and LOVES to talk about beer! His favorite beer is 547, he teaches our McF Beer Academy Beer History Classes and is nicknamed Professor Emeritus of Beer. He works Wednesday nights so swing by, grab a pint, and say "Hi!"

If you are interested in taking our McF Beer Academy Classes, more details can be found on our website - link in our bio!

Start your beer engines! Award winning MSB is back on CASK!! Our MSB (McFleshman's Special Bitter) is an English Pale Ale that is not bitter at all, but has a rich balance of malt and hops that truly defines what an Ale should be! Cheers to the MSB!

Never had a cask ale before? Today is the day! We specialize in cask conditioned ales which are naturally carbonated in the cask (nicknamed a firkin or pin) resulting in lower carbonation levels compared to our lagers. This level of carbonation creates a creamy beer that is super satisfying. They are served at cellar temperatures which are only slightly warmer than lagers - and perfect for these colder months. This is THE traditional beer in the British Pub so come by the taproom for a micro-vacation to London! Cheers and see you after work!

At McFleshman's Brewing Co., we honor the tradition of a Public House - a 3rd space for you to find conversation & friendships; both new and old. In the British fashion, we do not accept tips as we pay our staff a living wage - essentially the tips are included. With inflation causing rising costs of raw ingredients, and to honor our dedicated employees' living wage, we're sharing with you that we must increase our prices. We hope that you continue to make McF your 3rd space and thank you all for your support as we adjust to the changing times. Cheers, Friends! We're all in this together! ...

Taught by Bobby Fleshman (owner/brewer/NASA guy) our Beer Science Class starts Feb 6th and will be all about how science makes what you THINK about what you DRINK!! Learn the history of how science helped us discover lagers and why water is so important. No science background necessary, but a love of beer is required. More details on our website! Link in our Bio!! ...

On a cold day like today, gratitude can warm the soul. Thanks to all of you who have made us your 3rd space! It fills our hearts with joy that you have embraced McFleshmans and welcomed us into your lives. Cheers to you! ...
