Brought to you by Burnt City Brewing & Omega Yeast:
We like kveik. Norwegian farmhouse ale yeast has only recently become readily available to American brewers, and a lot of us are having tons of fun experimenting with it. Kveik Fest is an invitational celebration of kveik, featuring local breweries and a number of breweries that don't show up often in Chicago.
We're privileged to announce that blogger Lars Marius Garshol of Larsblog (http://www.garshol.priv.no/blog/), a leading expert on kveik and farmhouse brewing techniques, will be traveling from Norway to give a talk at Kveik Fest.
Kveik Fest is being organized with incredible support from our friends at Omega Yeast. We thank them for making this event possible and for introducing us to kveik.
More details and participating breweries announced on the Facebook event!
