Kveik Fest

September 7 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$75.00

We like Kveik.

Burnt City Brewing is proud to announce the First Annual Kveik Fest with special guest Lars Marius Garshol!

Kveik is a 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. This great lineup of breweries will come together on September 7th to bring you one of the most unique beer fests Chicago has ever seen!

At Kveik Fest you can expect your taste buds to experience an extravaganza of different flavors and styles all made with kveik yeast. Don’t make the mistake of assuming this means all the beers will be the same. Kveik is an incredibly versatile yeast, lending itself to many different styles and flavor profiles. We’re excited to see what these great breweries concoct for this one-of-a-kind event!

We are ecstatic and very honored to announce that 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 talk with Kveik Fest attendees. Come prepared with questions of the funkiest kind to engage with Lars while sipping on kveik beer samples. To keep the fun going we’ll be bringing you some funky entertainment, games, and amusements of all sorts!

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.
