Brewing Wild Beers with Local Plants, Extracting Wild Yeast + Plants Walk

Snack and Drinks Tasting

Saturday September 29


Brewing wild beers with local plants - Extracting yeast and more!


Let's get back to the basics of brewing and making tasty beers with plants that you can find in nature or the supermarket. You'll be amazed how easy it is to brew at home with little equipment and no prior experience. During this workshop, you learn about plants that have been used during history as brewing ingredients, how to extract wild yeast, creating sugar sources from fruits and berries and much more!


First we'll go on a plant walk and identify some of the plants and other ingredients (such as barks and roots) that have been used historically to create interesting brews (Horehound, mugwort, yarrow, etc...). We'll also talk about medicinal and edible plants during the walk. It's a very slow walk, probably 1hr.


After the walk, we'll go back to the workshop area and I'll show you the process of making a simple wild beer on location - together, we'll go through all the steps so you can easily redo it at home.


Some wild refreshments, beer tasting and snacks will be served.
