Join biomolecular archaeologist Patrick McGovern and pioneering brewmaster Sam Calagione as they explore the biotechnology of ancient ales from around the world, and reconstruct an ages-old Nordic Kvasir. Taste the results of chemical, botanical and pollen evidence taken from a 3,500‐year‐old Scandinavian drinking vessel. Observe the results of several kinds of special fermentation to discover just how wild yeast can get. It’s a sensational evening of science, beer and conversation, inspired by the innovative practices of our ancestors.
This program will premiere a special version of Dogfish Head Kvasir fermented with wild yeast.
This program is presented in collaboration with Wythe Hotel, Brooklyn.
