@ 6-9 p.m.


Farmers, brewers, and anyone interested in craft beer is invited to join Future Harvest at Corcoran Brewing Company to learn the basics of hops production as well as distribution and marketing techniques to sell hops locally and regionally. As the craft brewing movement gains momentum, demand for regionally produced hops is growing. Stan Driver of HootNHollerHops will share his many years of experience producing hops as well as creating partnerships between farmers and craft brewers to form cooperatives, which allow smaller producers to participate in this growing market. We will also hear from Kevin Bills of Corcoran Brewing Company and Favio Garcia of Lost Rhino Brewing Company about their experience in local and regional sourcing. Of course, there will also be a tour of Corcoran’s facilities and a chance to taste their brews.Speakers: Stan Driver, Owner of HootNHollerHops; Favio Garcia, founder of Lost Rhino Brewing Company; Kevin Bills, Brew Master at Corcoran Brewing Company. Stan Driver is owner of HootNHollerHops, as well as a hop grower at Blue Mountain Brewery and Blue Mountain Barrel House. He is also Chairman of the Old Dominion Hops Cooperative. Kevin Bills is the Brew Master at Corcoran Brewing Company, and Favio Garcia is a founder and Brew Master at Lost Rhino Brewing Company. Corcoran Brewing Company, 205 E. Hirst Rd.
