In this episode, Mike Gerhart, Brewmaster for Otter Creek Brewery and Wolaver’s Organic Ales takes us on a “Beer Geek’s Brewery Tour”.  This is not your typical “dumbed-down” brewery tour, so you won’t hear anyone explain what a mash tun is in this video.  While not a super technical look, Mike shows us what it really takes to operate a moderate size brewery.  We walked away filled with new found knowledge of the process and hope you are able to do the same.

For more about Mike Gerhart, Otter Creek Brewery and Wolaver’s Organic Ales checkout our other video “Otter Creek Brewery – Interview with New Brewmaster Mike Gerhart”. You can also visit them in Middlebury, Vermont.  Of course, if you are making the trip up be sure to stay with us at Forty Putney Road B&B, the perfect spot to share a pint and relax from your trip.

    Nice to see that you showed off a brewery that’s making some environmentally conscious decisions in the process. Cheers.

    Definitely the best brewery tour I’ve been on. It’s nice to get past the “tourist” tour. Although, now my head is spinning. I’m still trying to get a grip on my new all-grain homebrew set-up :)

    Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

    Many thanks for this article. I would also like to express that it can often be hard when you find yourself in school and merely starting out to establish a long credit ranking.
    There are many scholars who are simply trying to
    make it through and have a good or beneficial credit history is often
    a difficult issue to have.
