OBC Brew Camp 2016 – Wild and Sour Beer Weekend

May 27, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - May 30, 2016 @ 1:00 pm

OBC presents “Brew Camp 2016 – Wild and Sour Beer Weekend”
Memorial Day (May 28-30th)
REGISTER AT http://oregonbrewcrew.org/event-2156203

OBC Member/Guest Price – $60/person
Non-OBC Price – $75/person

Ever wanted to combine camping and homebrewing? Ever curious about capturing the local flavor and funk of Oregon with wild yeast and friendly bacteria while spending a few days “off the grid”? Well that is exactly what we will be doing over Memorial Day weekend along the beautiful Trask River in Tillamook county! Come join fellow OBC members and friends from the Portland beer community, for 3 days of fun, great food, group brewing experiences and education.

Our guest speaker will be Trevor Rogers from De Garde Brewing in Tillamook, who will discuss various topics relating to sour and wild beer production, and will help the group brew two 30 gallon batches of wort with De Garde aged hops and fresh river water. This beer will be naturally cooled overnight in the campground and inoculated with the resident yeast and bacteria from the area. 20 participants will have the chance to receive three gallons of wort in their own carboys, or you may purchase a PET carboy for an additional $15.

Participants will also be able to bring their own brew stands and setups if they wish. There is no reason we can not brew a few batches of clean beer as well! There will also be an amazing wild and sour beer tasting on Saturday night!
