I think this is aimed more at people that want to break into commercial brewing and grain. Limited to 20 attendees at $500, including lodging.

inspired by

Farmer Brewer Winter Weekend

Hampshire College January19-20th
We receive many emails and phone calls from enthusiastic people wanting to either grow grains for malting, grow hops, start a malthouse, or brew beers and spirits using local ingredients. Some are planning to do it all, field to glass.

In response to all this energy and excitement we have decided to hold a weekend workshop where people with these interests and expertise can come to learn.

In 2 days we will cover grains, hops, malt, and brewing. Speakers will touch upon the technical aspects as well as the practical considerations. In our workshops we will be learning about varitals and soil conditions as well as equipment and costs of production for farming, malting and brewing.

Our speakers will include a brewing science professor, hop specialist, hop grower, organic grain farmer, farmer brewers, and craft maltsters.

If this goes well, we will try to make this an annual event where we can begin to build a community of farmers, brewers, farmer brewers and everyone in between.

If you or someone you know may be interested you can find more details on our website

Whether beer is made in waders or in a toilet tank, as long as it is fun and the brewer likes how it tastes, who cares how it is brewed?
