The academic program for What`s Brewing 2015

Here are some of the extracurricular activities going on at the Tou Scene campus during Whats Brewing 2015. There will be hardcore geek info regarding lambic blending and yeast fermentation. There will be information regarding beer & food pairing, norwegian farmhouse brewing history and norwegian breweries from three norwegian authors, and some courses held by the breweries them selves, so sign up. The two Masterclases will probably sell out quick, so send a mail to to reserve a ticket. The pre-reservation only applies for the two Master Class sessions. The other classes only require showing up on time.

These lectures will be held in the 5th floor on the first door to the right on your way to the loft. All classes costs one bong, except Blending Lambic with Raf Soef that costs 5 bongs.

Friday 16:00: Gustav Jørgensen presents his new book “Øl Vin Mat”
Gustav have been in the Norwegian beer scene since the beginning and is most known for his book “Skummende lidenskap: Fem stabeiser og deres øl” featuring Stavangers very own Mike Murphy. Now he’s back with another book, written with Geir Salvesen author of 15 books on wine. This time the subject is beer, wine & food. For two years Gustav had a weekly column in Norway’s biggest newspaper VG, he’s also active with live music and beer tastings?! This presentation will be in Norwegian.

Friday 17:00: MASTER CLASS - Blending lambic with Raf Soef of Bokkereyden
You know all those lambics you only dream of tasting? Raf tried them.
Raf is somewhat of an up and coming rock star in the beer scene back in Belgium where he’s from. He’s in the process of starting his own brewery; his first beer might be a lambic blended with the first ever barrel aged Fantome beer. Want to join this master class please e-mail to reserve a seat, but be quick for this will sell out fast. For this master class only we’re taking a fee of 5 bongs, lot’s of tasters is included.

Friday 18:00: Meet the brewer – Chad Yakobson of Crooked Stave
Chad is somewhat of a wild yeast and brettanomyces geek. He used to have a blog called “the brettanomyces project” and you can find many interview online where he shares his knowledge, I can especially recommend the “Cellarmanship” interview. This is your chance to meet him, listened and ask questions.

Friday 19:00: Lars Marius Garshol on Norwegian Farmhouse traditions
Lars has travelled far and wide in Norway collecting brewing history from traditional Norwegian farms that he documents in his blog Larsblog. One such is the famous “Kveik” yeast that White Labs have made commercially available as “Norwegian Farmhouse Ale”. He’s also published a book on Lithuanian beer where they’ve found a completely unique yeast strain. We’re very grateful for Lars work on documenting history that soon would be lost without him. This lecture will be in Norwegian.

Friday 20:00: Chris White from White Labs on yeast
Yeast makes the beer, without it you only have sugar water. White labs are the leading manufacturer of yeast in the world. Proper fermentation is what separates great beer from crap and where most home brewers mess up. Come and learn from the expert! This is the same presentation as the one on Saturday.

Saturday 16:00: Knut Albert Solem presents his new book “Norsk bryggeri- og ølguide”
Knut is attempting to document all active Norwegian breweries in his new book, no small task during this microbrewery boom currently going on. We’re guessing no one has visited as many Norwegian breweries as him. Knut is focusing on challenges and opportunities during this process and the innovation caused by this. Soon we’ll have Norwegian malt and hops and be able to make real Norwegian beer. This presentation will be in Norwegian.

Saturday 17:00: MASTER CLASS - Gert Christiaens owner and brew master of Oud Beersel
Gert is the owner of Oud Beersel who found out back in 2002 his favorite brewery was closing down. He immediately contacted the old brew master and restarting the brewery. Gert will speak for us on the process of making Lambic beers. Want to join this master class please e-mail to reserve a seat, but be quick for this will sell out fast.

Saturday 18:00: Meet the brewer - Alan Sheppard
Alan Sheppard was the master brewer of Barcelona based Edge Brewing who got awarded the price of “Worlds Best New Brewery” by ratebeer for 2014. Both Alan and Scott (the owner) are Americans doing what Americans do best, spreading tasty craft beer around the world. What makes Edge stand out from every other microbrewery? Maybe he will share their secret with you!

Saturday 19:00: Simply Hops with Philip Lowry
Our last addition to the program is none less than one of Europe’s best hop providers.
Saturday 20:00: Chris White from White Labs on yeast
Yeast makes the beer, without it you only have sugar water. White labs are the leading manufacturer of yeast in the world. Proper fermentation is what separates great beer from crap and where most home brewers mess up. Come and learn from the expert! This is the same presentation as the one on Friday.

Saturday 21:00: Homebrew completion award ceremony
If you were of the 60 participants who entered the homebrew competition be sure to be here! We got the most awesome prizes ever given to the winners of our two classes. Our main sponsor for the competition Bryggselv is giving away a brand new fully automatic “Grainfather” brewkit valued around 8.000 NOK to the winner of both our categories: Stout/Porter & Farmhouse ale. There will also be 2nd and 3rd prizes but let’s be honest, it’s all about the winners! We urge the participants to show up early to make sure they get in, we have limited space available.
