The Art of Craft Brewing
Lecturer: Kevin Shertz
Cost: $25 members, $35 nonmembers
In 2013, craft beer comprised 7.8% of the beer sold in the United States, up from 6.5% in 2012. What is fueling this rapid growth? We believe it’s simple: people want to support locally-made products created by independent small businesses. And, believe it or not, craft beer has just as much flavor complexity and diversity as wine.
Kevin Shertz, a local architect, formally-trained brewer, and founder of the Chester River Brewing Company (opening next year) will discuss the art and science of beer, how it is produced, and lead a tasting of different beer styles, with a special emphasis on locally-produced beers from around the Delmarva area.
