BAGBY BEERLEADER BREW DAY: 4/14/18
WE’RE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF OUR COMMUNITY BEER EDUCATION PROGRAM: BAGBY BEERLEADERS!
Being a Beerleader is a unique and special opportunity to experience all the fun and interesting aspects of making beer – from recipe formulation to fermentation, and everything in between – participants will have complete access during a full brew day at Bagby Beer Company – side by side with our award-winning and accomplished owner and head brewer, Jeff Bagby – to see, feel, smell, and taste all that goes in to making a batch of beer – Beerleaders will even get to name the beer they helped make!
FAR MORE THAN A STANDARD, RUN OF THE MILL ‘TOUR’, BEERLEADERS ARE WELCOMED INTO THE ENTIRE BEER MAKING PROCESS IN DETAIL:recipe design, grain varieties, milling, and storage; mash in, water temperature, mixing process, and rest; underletting, vorlauf, and lauter; hop selection, hop format, and hop addition timing; kettle, whirlpool, heat exchange; fermentation and yeast handling; brewery equipment and brewing system design
Beyond the brewing process, Beerleaders will be showered with information regarding the history and context of beer styles, beer naming and marketing considerations, beer tasting techniques, food, and beer pairing, as well as the challenges and rewards of the business of craft beer. Group size is severely limited to allow a personal, hands-on experience.
WHO’S THIS FOR?
Perfect for those new to beer or those who have always wanted to peel back the curtain and spend some time in a working brewery, Beerleaders will conclude their day having a genuine understanding of and appreciation for the brewing process and a new or renewed appreciation for beer itself. Each guest will be enriched by the depth and quality of information provided throughout this fun, thorough day in the brewery.
