Paulaner. Hacker-Pschorr. Löwenbräu. Spaten. Augustiner. What are these?

These are beers that are way inferior to the beer that will be brewed and consumed at AgoraFest’s traditional beer brewing workshop this year! That’s right, it is about time Braumeister Markus Johansson teaches us how to brew the most consumed (at least for two weeks out of the year) beer, a beer that will help you learn to say Gemütlichkeit even if you don’t know what that word means, a beer that will make you want to drink lagers again (just don’t drink ‘Merican lagers, they are Scheiße), a beer that you literally are supposed to drink in Maß quantities, a beer that will make you want to shout, Zicke zacke, zicke zacke, hoi hoi hoi!

As everyone knows, AgoraFest is not typically known as a festival where people overindulge, but with this beer, I suggest holding onto your Lederhosen (or Dirndl), lest in the morning they say about you, Gestern Abend war sie eine echte Bierleiche!

Prost, und bis bald wieder!

(This demonstration takes a total of 3-4 hours, but there are natural breaks so you can come and go and still experience the entire process. Mark will announce during the demo approximately when the various steps will take place.)

Award winning Brewmeister Mark Johnson is back again with a start to finish all-grain brewing workshop at AgoraFest. This is his sixth year and each year he has provided entertaining, educational, and delicious demonstrations of the brewing art that have been one of the most attended and anticipated sessions of AgoraFest. Mark is a BJCP Certified beer judge and has been a brewer for over 15 years. He has won Best of Show at the Minnesota State Fair Homebrew competition, and he is known for his fun and educational talks on the art of brewing, as well as his excellent beer!
