Frog Level Brewing’s Williams to teach beer-making class

Clark Williams, who owns and operates Frog Level Brewing in Waynesville, will teach Southwestern Community College’s first beginning home brewing class next month at the Jackson Campus.

Even though he’s been brewing his own beer since 2006, Clark Williams still enjoys the process and the challenge of making every batch taste as great as the last.

“The science of it now is what’s getting to be the most fun for me,” said Williams, who owns and operates Frog Level Brewing in Waynesville.

To introduce a new generation of aspiring beer makers to his craft, Williams will be teaching Southwestern Community College’s first beginning home brewing class starting June 3. The class will run from 5:30-8:30 each Tuesday through July 1.

There will be one Saturday class (June 14) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cost for enrollment is $99.

“We’ll all be fermenting the same style of beer, a pale ale,” Williams said. “After fermenting, we’ll introduce different ingredients into each batch. We’ll add strawberries, blackberries – whatever we can get our hands on – so everyone can then taste what a difference those ingredients make in the final products. It’s very much a course for beginners, people who’ve not tried brewing more than one batch on their own before.”
