The Spirited Herbalist, Brewing Sacred Beer with Renee Silvus, Luminaire
September 22 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In ancient cultures, the medicine woman is responsible for preserving yeasts and creating seasonal brews. The process includes sacred language, ceremonies, and customs.
We will process beer in each stage–harvesting a plant and making tea, creating wort in the carboy, racking partially-ready wort, and bottling finished beer. The beers are hops, malt, and gluten-free. Since we taste aged brews as we go, the class is suitably…spirited.
Participants are invited to bring a freshly-harvested plant and herbs to brew. September offers berries, fresh fruit, and roots. You will go home with an air-locked jug of your own wort, a siphon tube, bottle caps, and aged beer from the Haven Cellar.
Stay for Barter, Buy, and Bicker, a delicious potluck dinner and Bridge Dancing!
Please note this class is part of the annual Herbalist Gathering. The $45 per person registration fee includes meal tickets for all 3 daily lunch buffets, dinner ticket for Saturday’s potluck, participation in Friday’s Medicinal Plants of the Cow Creek Area outing, the mullein torchlight parade, evening saunas, Barter, Buy or Bicker, Saturday night’s Bridge Dancing, and a stout cloth Mavens’ Haven bag.
If you only wish to attend the beer class, Renee is waiving the class fee and collecting the $45 Haven facility fee.
