ABA Presents: Barley & Malt – From Fundamentals to Current Issues
Feb. 6-7, 2015

Join us as we host Joseph D. Hertrich, retired Group Director, Brewing Raw Materials for Anheuser-Busch, Inc., who will give a two-day seminar entitled “Barley & Malt: From Fundamentals to Current Issues,” on Friday, Feb. 6 – Saturday, Feb.7 at Highland Brewing in Asheville. By now you’re likely aware of a serious, if not critical, situation regarding the 2014 North American barley harvest, and that means there will probably be issues in the brewhouse. This seminar will help you better understand the situation and learn how work with what is likely to be a lesser quality malt.  LEARN MORE.
