Blending and mixing beer history

Bierberaad Friday 5 June

This edition of Bierberaad we will look back, in order to go forward. Together with brewers, artists, a journalist, architect and cocktail-shaker we will travel through the history of our fermented gold. Including the first bread beers ever brewed (6000 years ago!), medieval beer mixing procedures, "Geuze Steken" (Beer Blending), the latest beer science and unusual ingredients. How about using urine for instance? Or mixing it up with water, Oude Geuze and smoked Urbock?
