Beer Education Night - Oak Aging Basics

Presented by Jeff Crane, Council Brewing Barrel Program Director

Education and sharing knowledge is a big part of what Council Brewing is all about. We welcome the community to join us each month in our tasting room for Beer Education Night. The second Wednesday of each month, we will cover a different topic related to the beer making process, brewery management, or our personal experience here at Council. 

Wednesday, Jan. 13th, 2016 from 6pm-7pm Jeff Crane, Barrel Program Director, will be discussing the differences in toast levels of oak, as well as American oak versus French Oak. You will learn about the impact that various types of oak has on a beer's flavor as well as techniques that can be applied on a homebrew level, as well as designing recipes using oak as an ingredient. 

The Beer Education Night Flight of five tasters includes: our Belgian Tripel with four different oak treatments and the Tripel as a control: American Light Toast, American Medium + Toast, French Light Toast, and French Medium + Toast.
We will begin pouring flights at 5:30pm, so come early to get your seat. Jeff will begin the presentation at 6pm. We hope to see you there! RSVP to the Facebook event or the Google form.
