Next workshop

Sunday, 8 September 2019. Enter your email address at the bottom of this page to sign up!


You’ll learn the theory and practice of how to make beer at home, from raw ingredients to finished and packaged product (beer tasting and 2 take-home beers included). Our goal will be to produce a 20-liter batch of home-brewed beer from whole grains, learning the secrets of beer-making art and science during the process. The “hands-on” methodology will involve you in the real process of beer-making, while learning the principles at the same time.

Discover the theory and practice of:
  • Raw ingredient selection.
  • Sugar extraction from malt.
  • Boiling and cooling.
  • Fermentation process.
  • Recipe design.
  • Beer tasting.
  • Purchasing/building brewing equipment.
  • Post-fermentation options.
  • Bottling.
  • Sanitation.
  • Troubleshooting potential problems.


Margaret began as a hobby home-brewer in Canada in 2010. After moving to Lisbon in 2012, she again picked up the hobby, which soon became an all-consuming passion. In late 2016, she founded the AMO Brewery.

Since Margaret began home-brewing in Lisbon, she has led a number of workshops teaching people how to make their own beer at home, or in their eco-village or community association. She enjoys demystifying the world of beer-making and empowering people to Do-It-Yourself and control their own production.
