Sahti: Toast to Tradition
Finnish Beer Brewing with Grant P.H. Barber
February 11 Saturday: 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
March 26 Sunday of Kalevala Festival at 1:30 p.m.
This year celebrates the centennial of Finland’s independence. In coordination with the Kalevala Festival on March 25-26, 2017 at the Nordic Heritage Museum, the Craft School is offering a unique opportunity to brew a batch of traditional Finnish Sahti in the traditional method, in a hollowed out log. This two part series begins on Saturday, February 11 with a short lecture by Home Brewer and Museum Professional Grant P.H. Barber, to share the history of this historic Finnish beer. Followed by actually brewing the Sahti in the hollowed out log called a kuurna, participants will learn the difference between traditional and contemporary brewing practices along with the science behind each step.
The Sahti will then be fermented and bottled in order to be ready for the Kalevala Festival and Finnish celebrations. Then on March 26 at 1:30 p.m., come back to the Nordic Heritage Museum to try your Sahti, cheers, and celebrate Finland’s Independence!
