BROOKINGS – Why are there so many different types of beer? Seth Koch, a beer guru from Wooden Legs, has the answer.
The Brookings Public Library will host a virtual Beer School at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, at via Zoom. To attend, visit the library’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bkglib/events) or the library’s calendar on its website (https://www.brookingslibrary.org/calendar.php) for the Zoom login and password.
This online class will cover the history of beer and the civilizations that it came from, the ingredients that make up beer, the different styles that are available, and even the process of home brewing. The class will end with a question-and-answer session with Koch and a handful of resource recommendations from the library’s Community Services Coordinator, Mikaela Neubauer.
Koch founded Wooden Legs Brewing Company 10 years ago and worked as the head brewer there for seven of those years. He has taught multiple brewing sections for South Dakota State University’s Beer Production class. He has attended the Siebel Institute of Technology for formal brewing training.
As this event will take place in everyone’s home, participants can feel free to log on with their beverage of choice in hand.
