Zombie Apocalypse beer brewing event (which I missed)

I wish I had known about this event sooner. And been in Durham, NC, to have attended.

Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse: Beer Brewing

Friday, February 10, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM (ET)

Durham, NC

Beer is an important food group for most college students, so knowing how to make your own if things go south is essential. Learn about the basics of homebrewing in this hands-on workshop.

Hosted by Duke Campus Farm:

The Duke Campus Farm is a one-acre fruit and vegetable farm that provides the Duke community with fresh, delicious, sustainable produce and an educational facility around all things food related.

Alas no, just missed it. It’s hard to tell if it was simply a beginning homebrewing class or if they were taking the “brew in any situation” angle. I hope it was the latter, especially considering they have a whole series of “Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse” events.

    Alas, as the co-creator of the “Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse” beer brewing class, I’m confident you would have been disappointed had you attended. It was, essentially, a beginning homebrew class with a simple mission of showing people that it’s really not that hard, that you don’t need a chemistry degree to ferment something drinkable (the yeast does all the work!). We did include a fair bit of discussion about jerry-rigging equipment from materials around the house. And we demonstrated how to make a decent mead (ciser, to be precise) by shaking together apple juice and honey and pitching some yeast.

    All that is to say: please keep up your work! Demand for our workshop was about five times capacity, so we will certainly be doing it again. Next time, we’ll use your Apocalypse Beer guide and teach people how to *really* thrive when the zombies come after our brains…

    Cheers,
