The Beers Made By Walking series returns for a second year of botany and brews!
Join Greenbelt, brewers from Mazama Brewing Co., and botanists for a special walk at Owens Farm– an incredible mix of meadow and oak forest at the peak of wildflower season. Let’s celebrate and toast the natural areas and beers of the mid-Willamette Valley!
Beers Made By Walking
This program invites local brewers to go on nature hikes and imagine beer inspired by edible and medicinal plants found outdoors. We discuss the brewing process, learn about the edible and medicinal plants we see along the way, and gain a greater appreciation for the land that inspires and flavors local brews. Since 2011 over 1,000 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 and meads have included: lemon balm, elder flower, yarrow, mustard seed, honey, and fennel.
This walk is free and family-friendly. Owens Farm is accessed through GLT-guided tours only, so sign up today to explore this unique conservation area! For more information and to sign-up (spaces are limited), email Jessica.
