Learn about brewing beer at home through two free livestreamed video that will be produced in a partnership by the Saline County and Garland County Libraries. The programs are free and are intended for ages 21 and up.
On Wednesday, October 21st at 7 p.m., Garland County Library Director Adam Webb and Garland County Library volunteer, Chris Hough will walk viewers through the process. The video will be posted to the Saline County Library’s Facebook page for viewers to enjoy at their leisure.
On Thursday, October 22nd at 7 p.m., Adam and Chris will host a live Q&A on the Saline County Library’s Facebook page to answer any patron questions that may have come up after watching the homebrewing process. Saline County Library Community Librarian, Alissa Turner, will moderate this live Q&A and will have questions of her own that are sure to cross your mind if you ever want to craft your own beer.
“This will be an opportunity for our communities to learn a fun hobby that they can do from home as the weather gets cooler,” says Turner. “They can also safely participate in this hobby while maintaining social distancing and staying at home.”
You will also have the chance to get the backstory on beer, as well as learn about the current trends of microbrews and craft beers. On Monday, October 19th, the Saline County Library will be hosting Active Minds as they tell the story of beer on Zoom at 7 p.m. Through this hour-long discussion, they will discuss the origins and history of beer, how it’s made, different types of beer, and the rise of several great American brewers and beer families.
