The first day of Labor Day holiday (April 29- May 1) saw the launch of Pocket Beer School, delivered physically at Pocket Brewery in Jinshan and by brew master Shihai Sun hands-on. There were office workers, college students etc, all drawn in here for the common love for craft beer. Shihai had all covered with tons of information about beer and the class. A British ale was what the group looked to brew for their first brew day. Many had the chance to lay their hands on all the grinders, muslin bags, kegs and other rigs.
