LIBERATI Tastemaker Days – Collab with Brehm Vineyards & Olin Schultz
Saturday, October 5 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 am
LIBERATI invites beer aficionados and enthusiasts of all levels to scientifically taste and compare sets of unique brews at ‘Tastemaker Days’ during GABF Oct. 3 – 6.
Thanks to the collaboration with some of the world’s most prominent yeast, hops and grape growers, each day during GABF, LIBERATI will present a set of eight test beers. Each set will isolate one organoleptic characteristic of one specific ingredient (yeast, grapes, hops, etc.), while keeping all other parameters nominal. In this way the taster can fully appreciate the difference between the compared different strains of yeast used, or the different varietals of grapes, and so on.
The public is invited to taste the eight variations each day in a special flight for $16, or with single tasters for $2.50. Each day, those who participate will be entered to win a voucher for 42 house brews to be shared with friends at LIBERATI.
On Saturday, Oct. 5, LIBERATI will collaborate with Brehm Vineyards and MoreBeer.com to showcase Oenobeers brewed with grapes selected in collaboration with renowned grape grower Peter Brehm, and with Viking Malt imported and supplied by Olin Schultz. Peter Brehm is a prominent grape grower and a pioneer in the techniques of grape distribution logistics. Olin Schultz has shaped the pro-am world of high-quality ingredients, equipment and supplies for wine, beer and many other fermented beverages. Each oenobeer will be brewed with Viking Malt, and fermented with 49% of a different varietal of wine grape, resulting in a set that allows the taster to explore and compare side by side the complex nuances and flavors of the different varietals. Grapes will include Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Grigio, Mosier Syrah, Gruner Veltner, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese.
Sticking around on Sunday? Don’t miss LIBERATI’s collaboration with Hop Head Farms from Hickory Corners, MI on Oct. 6. Taste single hop ales brewed with eight different varietals of Hop Head Farms hops. Each of these ales will be brewed with a different varietal of new and experimental hops from Hophead Farms in Michigan including Wolf, Grungeist, Dragon, Fox, Zuper Saazer, Hüll Melon, Cashmere, Mandarina. These hop forward pale ales will be strongly characterized by the hop character, being hoped at an absolutely impressive rate, and they will be available all day, starting with Liberati’s Brunch at 11am.
