Beers Made By Walking – Series 2
May 28, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Beers Made By Walking is a program that invites local brewers to go on nature hikes and make new beer inspired by edible and medicinal plants found outdoors. Since 2011 over 1000 breweries in five states have participated with local environmental organization to produce hundreds of different beers, each inspired by the land around the participating breweries. Natural elements used in beers have included: Lemon balm, elder flower, yarrow, mustard seed, honey, and fennel.
This year Beers Made By Walking is coming to Corvallis and partnering with Greenbelt Land Trust, to celebrate and honor the beers and natural areas of the mid-Willamette Valley!
You are invited to join brewers from Nectar Creek Mead and Sky High Brewing as we take a walk throughout Owens Farm with botanists to discuss the brewing process and learn about the watershed, it’s role in the region, the edible and medicinal plants we see along the way, and history on the region. The hike is led and coordinated by Greenbelt staff, with the aid of guest ethnobotanists and community members that we identify and coordinate in advance. These walks will serve as a launching point to inspire brewers to create nature-inspired craft brews to be launched in the fall.
For more information and to sign up for this walk (spaces are limited – sign up now!), email Rebecca. We are also holding a Beers Made By Walking outing on May 21st with Flat Tail Brewing and Mazama Brewing. For more info on that outing click HERE.
