Beer Is Agriculture: A Grain to Glass Tour, Tasting & Discussion
651 W Tower Ave, Alameda, CA 94501, USA
Join Almanac Beer Co. and Admiral Maltings for a hands-on exploration of the grain to glass process. This two part event includes a guided tour, tasting and discussion.
PART 1 - Tours
Starting literally at the roots, participants will first hear from local barley farmers and traditional maltsters in Admiral Maltings' malthouse facility. We’ll then go next door to Almanac’s brewery to learn about the brewing process. The tour will end with a cheese tasting from a local dairy farm that utilizes Almanac’s spent grain as feed for their herd, bringing the grain to glass process full circle.
Tours start at Admiral Maltings every 15 minutes and are limited to 20 guests per tour. Please select a specific tour time below and be sure to arrive on time.
