Good Beer Hunting: Am/Pro Homebrew Walking Tour
Explore some of West Town's best brewing secrets on an Am/Pro Homebrew Walking tour with special guest, beer writer Joshua Bernstein, author of The Complete Beer Course, and the inspiration behind the walking tour concept.
We'll be visiting homebrewers on the verge of going pro, as well as a couple who have recently made the leap to commercial status. Each stop will include a presentation of the brewer's technical set-up, approach to brewing, and free sampling of their latest recipes.
