The Grain Gathering: Western WA Tasting

  • WSU Mount Vernon Campus 16650 Washington 536 Mount Vernon, WA, 98273 United States

The annual Grain Gathering conference brings together professional and home bakers, maltsters, brewers, distillers, millers, farmers, wheat breeders, chefs, food writers, wood-oven builders, and people who come to enjoy “summer camp for bread lovers”.  Over 40 workshops, panel discussions and demonstrations explore a range of topics which may include the best of whole grain baking, milling techniques, brewing beer, baking in a wood fired oven,  starting a whole grain bakery, growing a regional grain network, the science of bread, or comparing flavors and functionalities in a variety of wheats and other grains. We will be pouring our beer during the Western Washington Tasting Event which also includes Westland Distillery, The Pike Brewing Company, Chuckanut Brewery, Samish Bay Cheese, Evelyn’s Crackers, and barley bred and grown by graduate student Brigid Meints.
