Have you ever wondered what beer from the Middle Ages might have tasted like? If you thought that wheat, hops, yeast esters, and barrel aging were modern craft beer trappings, you may be surprised to know that over 500 years ago the region of Einbeck, Germany was successfully producing a style of beer with a profile that could rival that of the best craft breweries today.
This week Castle Church is brewing All Saints Einbecker Ale and Indulgences Double IPA in preparation for our community's Craft Brew Day in July. Craft Brew Days are a time for folks to gather in community for food, fellowship, fun, and beer tastings. We also brew a batch of beer on the Castle Church pilot system which is a great way learn about beer and the brewing process. If you are in the area, we encourage you to check out our calendar on the Connect page of our website and follow us on social media for details about how you can join the fun! Everyone is welcome to be community together!
Grace and Peace,
