As consumer preferences are constantly evolving, more and more brewers are looking to diversify their portfolios beyond beer. The industry itself looks to evolve into other fermented beverages such as hard seltzer, hard kombucha, and spirits. While these beverages have the same basic concepts as crafting beer, there are some important aspects to their fermentation that require a bit more knowledge. In this sponsored BA Collab Hour webinar, join Chris White, CEO & President of White Labs, as he discusses yeast and fermentation tips and tricks for beverages beyond beer.
