Cooper-Young Community Farmers MarketThe Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest is partnering again with the Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market to teach people in Memphis and the Mid-South about making their own beer.

The Farmers Market will host “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Homebrewing (But Were Afraid to Ask),” the second in a series of homebrewing demonstrations, on Sept. 24.

Homebrewer Clark Ortkiese, of the Bluff City Brewers & Connoisseurs, will lead the demonstration. The event starts at 10:30 a.m. and takes place at the market in the parking lot of First Congregational Church, at the corner of Cooper and Walker.

In addition to the demonstration, homebrewing kits from Midsouth Malts, a homebrewing supply store at 741 N. White Station, will be for sale. And tickets for the second-annual Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest, coming up Oct. 15,  will also be sold.

The Cooper-Young Community Farmers Market takes place 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on every Saturday from April 30 to Oct. 29.
