About this Event

Berlin beer sommelier Sylvia Kopp and the MASH PIT welcome homebrewers, craft brewers and beer lovers to an exclusive workshop on brewing with botanicals hosted by Scratch Brewing on Sunday, July 21st.

We will start early in the mornings in a Berlin park with foreaging plants. Then we take those ingredients to the MASH PIT, our brewhouse of the day, where we will create and brew six different ales using these ingredients.

The workshop is limited to 12 participants only. The MASH PIT provides 6 brewing stations for 2 people to brew one batch together.

Schedule as follows:

8 am – We meet with Scratch Brewing in a park for foraging plants together.

11 am – We arrive at the MASH PIT

• Marika Josephson and Aaron Kleidon talk about brewing with botanicals

• We co-create six recipes with the botanicals we collected

12 am – We start brewing

2 pm – Tasting with Scratch beers

5:30 pm – After brewing is completed we clean the equipment we used.

Participants are free to join the Scratch tap takeover at the MASH PIT.

Included are all the ingredients for brewing (malt, hops, yeast, water), the Scratch tasting, lunch and refreshments. And 10 liters of your own beer once finished and bottled – at pickup!

The two founders and operators of Scratch Brewing Marika Josephson and Aaron Kleidon describe themselves as "place-related brewery". They work with the resources that are given to them in their place. Some are grown, some collected. Marika is the brewer, Aaron more the botanist. With their radical local approach, Scratch have already made a name for themselves internationally. They are leading in brewing with botanicals, in the "Foraged Beers" category, and as a true farmhouse brewery that lives up to the word "farm" as they consequently use what they resource from their land. They mash in a wooden barrel, brew under the open sky. The yeast is stored in the fridge of their bakery, where they use it likewise in producing pizza and bread. Their beers can truly be claimed to provide the taste of terroir. This year, Scratch Brewing was also invited by Mikkeller to the Copenhagen Beer Celebration.

Marika and Aaron join us for Berlin Beer Week and are happy to share their knowledge and skills with German homebrewers and brewers.
