Experimental Brewing: “Debunking Myths About New England-Style IPAs”
Neil Fisher, Head Brewer/Owner, WeldWerks Brewing and Co-Presenters
Saturday 9:30–11:30 am Location: Imperial Ballroom, Beaver Run Conference Center
Our earliest seminar on Saturday morning is the Experimental Brewing Seminar, running from 9:30am – 11:30am. The result of a brainstorming session geared toward including innovative brewers who are mapping out the future of craft brewing, but may not be geared toward packaging or nationwide marketing, the Big Beers Festival is pleased to host “Brewing Outside the Box: Brewers Gone Wild!” David Edgar will once again be moderating our Experimental Brewing Seminar.
Seminar description and co-presenters to be announced shortly.
Neil Parker, Head Brewer/Owner, WeldWerks Brewing
Less than a year into brewing, WeldWerks won a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2015. Earlier this year, WeldWerks was voted the #1 new brewery in the country in the USA TODAY® 10Best contest.
Neil credits the Big Beers Festival as one of the catalysts for the creation of WeldWerks, both as the venue for the initial discussions with Colin Jones, Co-Founder of Weldwerks, and as the wager that fueled the business plan. Neil had made a commitment that if he won any medals in the Big Beers Homebrew Competition, he would start a brewery… and he did.
More information coming soon!
