Deschutes Brewery & Great Dane salute home brewing with upcoming event

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Living in Wisconsin we have a lot of great breweries, but many of us want to try out hand at brewing at home too. We got tips from a few experts on Wake Up Wisconsin Tuesday.

Ryan Schmiege is an Assistant Brewmaster with Deschutes Brewery, which just started selling its beer in Wisconsin this month. Fred Swanson is one of the organizers of The Great Taste of the Midwest. Swanson says when home brewing it's best to keep it sanitary and simple. To get started, you'll need a kettle, fermenter, bottling equipment, barley, hops and yeast.

Deschutes Brewery is partnering with Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company to celebrate craft beer and home brewers who want to learn more. It's Wednesday, July 16 from 7:00 - 10:00 p.m. at Great Dane's Hilldale location. Tickets are $20. To buy tickets, head to this website:
