Grain and Grape Fermentations

Grain and Grape Fermentations

Grapes and grains have been combined in fermented beverages since the dawn of the civilization. In fact the oldest known (based on botanical evidence) fermented beverage in the world was discovered in the Jiahu province and contained sake yeast, sake rice, honey and white grapes. American craft breweries have revived the traditions of combining these ingredients to create intensely flavorful and complex beers. Join Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Schlafly Beer as they discuss beer and wine hybrids and each present two of these beers from their arsenal.
