This course will provide an introduction to new dishes from the chef’s of Double Wide Grill and an insider’s look at the inner workings of a Dogfish Head brew.
Beer: Beer is the world's most widely consumed alcoholic beverage; it is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea. It is thought by some to be the oldest fermented beverage Beer is produced by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch and saccharification enzymes are often derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat.
Wine: Wine is an alcoholic beverage, made of fermented fruit juice, usually from grapes. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, or other nutrients.
Beaver Brewing Company An artisan NANO-brewery, Beaver Brewing Company uses a 1.5 barrel system making each beer fresh and hand crafted.
