Then the real work started: at the Brewers Retreat, we met with the brewers and learnt a lot from them already, brewing several types of beer. MiniBrew's Martin and Sean Lawson of Lawson's Finest made a Strong Amber Maple beer, while our brewer Ko teamed up with Vinnie Cilurzo of Russian River Brewing to create a brett saison.
Stay tuned for more updates!
The next day focused on brewing new beers: a cookie IPA for Ko and his team, and a New England DIPA for Martin and his.
We had discussions on various subjects: from barrel projects to big beers and how to huff hops for quality control. At the end of the day, we had an interesting beer tasting dinner.
