Farm To Table Meets Grain to Growler

This weekend we are headed to the Raleigh/Durham area for the 2011 Sustainable Agriculture Conference that is hosted by our friends at Carolina Farm Stewardship Association.  They have compiled an amazing line-up of foodies, farmers, and permaculture professionals for several days of workshops and presentations.

But you know what we are really stoked about?…..the first batches of brew from Weeping Radish using Riverbend malts will be featured this weekend!!

Uli (owner of Weeping Radish) will be bringing along a sneak peak of their seasonal Doppelbock.  Keep an eye out for this one in December, they are planning to release a limited number of bottles and kegs throughout the state.

Riverbend will also be part of a roundtable discussion on small grains with Sean Wilson from Fullsteam, Ben Haynes from Looking Back Farms (our wheat grower), and Jennifer Lapidus of Carolina Ground, L3C.  We’ll be covering the full spectrum of the process from the seed to the fermenter….should be fun…not as much fun as drinking beer, but fun.

Stayed tuned for more new beer release information in the weeks ahead…word is getting out!
