Front Burner: A Crisp Refresher Course in Home-Brewing

The ultimate homemade weeknight dinner should include a home brew. Ballantine House, a wing of the Newark Museum, that was built for the brewing family in 1885 will provide the inspiration for a hands-on course in brewing. The classes will be held in the MakerSPACE of the museum, led by Thomas Jambor, a founder of the Morris Area Society of Homebrewers. It runs for four sessions, and participants will take home expertise and two six-packs of beer: Ballantine House Beer-Making Course, 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 25 and Nov. 1, 8 and 15, $120 for museum members, $140 for nonmembers, Newark Museum, 49 Washington Street (Washington Place), Newark, 973-596-6690, newarkmuseum.org.
