Beer School at the Kahana Brewpub – Water & Yeast
$20 per person – 11:30am – Tuesday, August 12th
This session of our beer school series explores the very important uses and manipulations of water and yeast as an ingredient in brewing beer. That’s right, these are the two necessary ingredients one can not omit in making beer. We will introduce you to the geographical origins and variations of water and yeast used in brewing, and talk about how these ingredients contribute to the mouthfeel and flavor to different beer styles and ultimately take brewing from godly to scientific.

The admission price covers the tasting of our house beers to showcase an understanding of the flavors and expressions of these ingredients. We’re excited to offer light food pairings along with the tasting presented by our Beer School partner Whole Foods Market. Together we will explore how food and beer can synchronize for the ultimate experience.
