Opportunities to engage with research at three localized events!

As the craft brewing industry is expanding in Michigan, so is the desire to source locally grown barley for malting. Join barley experts from Michigan State University and the malting and brewing industry for a discussion on the considerations and opportunities for barley production in Michigan. Each event will feature different research, speakers, and time for networking. Feel free to join us for one or all three events!
