Lost Lagers

Mike Stein and Pete Jones of Lost Lagers will demystify the magical Saison beer style and explain how Bière Belgique can be brewed with modern yeast. Specialty yeast will be furnished for students, cultured from a 19th Century barrel found on the site of the historic Shuter's Hill Brewery in Alexandria. The brewery is potentially the first lager beer site in Virginia. Scientist Jasper Akerboom, owner of Jasper Yeast, isolated yeast from a pre-prohibition barrel discovered by Alexandria Archeology, and the beer Akerboom made with this yeast became a National Grand Champion beer in the French/Belgian Specialty category at the US Beer Tasting Championships. From brewing season, a time of year when it was illegal to make lager beer, to brewing saison, the Franco-Belgian ale, Lost Lagers will provide a fun and educational class, as well as a usable sample of your very own "lost" yeast.

Stein is President of Lost Lagers, a beverage research firm, and writer for the Washington City Paper and DC Beer. He has served his historic beers at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History’s Food History Program and serves as the historian at DC Brau Brewing Company, LLC, the first production brewery in DC since 1956.

Jones is CEO of Lost Lagers and a beer historian, certified beer judge, and long time homebrewer. He’s contributed to recipe formulation and brewing of over one dozen commercial historic beers celebrating everything from DC's Christian Heurich Brewing Company to the Polish Embassy's Constitution Day Celebration. As Education Chair for the DC Homebrewers Club, Peter has taught a variety of topics and techniques for brewing novices through experts.

$75 ticket includes the class, tasting and Bright Yeast Labs WBC yeast.

A minimum of 8 people is required for this class to occur. Registrants will be informed if the minimum is not met.
