If “Brett” is your favorite drinking partner, it may be time to wade into the dangerous but satisfying adventure of wild brewing. Ready to guide you through this infectious endeavor is Keystone’s very own wild brewer, Aaron Fournier. Aaron has proven his brewing mettle again and again through his creative beers creations, taking home the Most Innovative prize two years in a row at Sierra Nevada’s Philly Beer Week Homebrew Competition.
This class will run through classic sour beer styles, strains of Brettanomyces and bacteria, recipe formulation, aging and bottling, and safeguarding your brewery from permanent contamination. Class includes tutored tastings of some classic sours and exploring different Brett and bacteria flavor characteristics with no less than 6 single strain and blend beers brewed by Aaron.
