This 2-part class explores the plants essential to beer through an interactive talk, a local microbrewery tour, and plenty of tasting.
Presented in partnership with Bomber Brewing, this will be a focused look at the ingredients in beer, and why and how they have been used through a global, historical perspective. Learn why women were once the only people allowed to brew beer, see hops with a closer lens to find the oils and resins on the female flowers, taste malted (germinated) barley, and understand the plant-based language of beer flavour profiling. The first evening will be an interactive talk at VanDusen, including sampling beer brewed specifically by Bomber Brewing with ingredients harvested from the Garden. The second evening will be a tour and tasting at Bomber Brewing among the tanks of fermenting ales. Price includes talk, brewery tour, and beer tasting at both locations. Ages 19+ only.
Please note: This is a two-part class. Please select your ticket option carefully and make sure it is for your preferred brewery tour date.
