Brewing TV - Episode 2: Lager Caves / Lager Brewing / Casanova Beer Cave Festival


Original postdate: May 14, 2010

- Lager caves with Doug Hoverson, beer historian
- Time to Brew: Casanova Cave-Bock
- Casanova Beer Cave Fest.... it's all about the lager caves!

In this episode of Brewing TV, we look at the history of lager caves, their function and the beer that was made in them. Author/beer historian Doug Hoverson shares his knowledge on the subject. We take some of his research and suggestions to craft a lager of our own that we then lager in a still-functioning cave. We come full-circle and serve our beer to the masses at a craft beer festival centered around the cave.

Did we mention: CAVES!
