Over the past several years, we've seen an increase in small and midscale agriculture, processing infrastructure and the continued rise of the booming brewing and distilling industry. With this confluence of events it is now the perfect time to start increasing consumer and producer knowledge of how to use and what to expect from crafts beverages made with local grains. This event will be a precursory event to the annual Great Lakes Hop & Barley Conference, which will be taking place in Detroit, MI on Thursday and Friday March 2-3, 2017.
