The Brewing Science Institute of Colorado held a one-day workshop at the University of Mary Washington on Tuesday. Attended by brewers from around Virginia, the workshop presented an overview of microbiological methods in the brewing of beer. Topics such as healthy yeast cultures and brewing contaminants were discussed. Virginia breweries including Battlefield Brewing, Blue & Gray Brewing, Legend Brewing, Old Dominion Brewing, Starr Hill Brewery, St. George Brewing and Williamsburg AleWerks attended the workshop. The event was organized by Jeff Fitzpatrick of Blue & Gray Brewing.
I was disappointed to have missed this event that brought together so many Virginia brewers. I received an email about it a while back, and unfortunately filed the email and then forgot about it. The Free Lance-Star has coverage here.
