A lot of great ideas happen over a beer, so perhaps it's fitting that the Bluegrass Brewing Company Production/Bottleworks and Taproom is partnering with IF University on a class about their ideas for great beer.
Join us at the Bluegrass Brewing Company production plant for a tour, tasting, and discussion to kick off Louisville Craft Beer Week (September 12-20, 2104). BBC Brewmaster Joel Halbleib and President Phillip Dearner will educate participants on various topics related to beer production: ingredients, the brewing process, packaging, and how beer ultimately reaches the final consumer. The class will include a brewery tour, beer sampling, and a discussion in the BBC Taproom. As an added bonus, participants will be the first to sample a special beer created for IdeaFestival®. All participants will receive a commemorative pint glass to continue their studies in the craft of beer. Talk about a brew-haha!
FACILITATOR: Joel Halbleib is Brewmaster and Vice President of Operations at the Bluegrass Brewing Company. Phillip Dearner is President of the Bluegrass Brewing Company and Vice President of the Kentucky Guild of Brewers. For more information about the BBC, please visit their website here.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The price of admission for this class ($14.99) includes a tour of the production plant, sampling of beer, and a special commemorative pint glass. Participants must be 21 years of age or older to participate. Participants are asked to arrive at 6:00 p.m. for introductions and networking so as to begin the tour promptly by 6:30 p.m.
