About This Course

This video course includes over 70 minutes of video and 4 brewing recipes!

In 2015, Emily and Evan Watson moved to a 25-acre farm in Poughkeepsie, NY. The location features an original 3-story 1830's barn which fully renovated houses their stainless steel 10BBL steam-fire brewhouse, local HV open oak fermenters, coolship, and a barrel aged sanctuary for wild, 100% NY ingredient farmhouse & sour beers tied directly to the farm & the Hudson Valley. In this video course, they will cover:

- How we got started
- Our brewing philosophy
- Sourcing ingredients
- Brewing procedures
- Cellaring our beer
- Cultivating our wild yeast
- Beekeeping
- Foraging on the farm

As they go through each step of farm brewing, they cover:
- How do they plant, treat, and harvest
- When do they add it to the brewing process and why
- Ways that someone could do something similar in more urban environments
- How do you tweak recipes to highlight the added ingredient
