Come to the King's Roost on Sunday, June 28, from 2-4pm and let Roe teach you how to make cold process soap from scratch.

Roe will walk you through every step,  safely and efficiently-- from selecting oils and mixing the lye, to finding elegant ways to add texture and scent to your soap, even packaging and wrapping the finished bars. 

You'll help make King's Roost soap, customizing the soap you make in class. Plus, you  get to take home 2 bars, either from the King's Roost that day, or by popping back in for the ones you make in class after they have cured.

Tickets are $35 and space is limited, so reserve your spot now.

What better what to celebrate the official start of summer (and FATHER'S DAY-- hint hint!) than with The King's Roost homebrew beer workshop? Join the fun on The King's Roost patio, Sunday, June 21, from 2-4pm.

Roe will begin with a general introduction to the history of beer and the magic of fermentation. You'll sample several of his own refreshing and delicious homemade brews and ciders. Then, you'll learn how to create your own beer with one of his lightning fast, easy and space-saving kits. These beer kits contain nothing but all-natural ingredients, no chemicals, additives or fillers. The varieties you can create are endless. Each makes 2-gallons of beer in a batch and requires a fraction of the time and space that traditional homebrew demands. 

Please reserve your spot in advance. Tickets are $35
