Refermentation was a dying art in the world of brewing, until the craft-brewing revolution brought a renewed appreciation of this traditional brewing technique. Oliver, who is also the author of the award-winning book The Brewmaster’s Table: Discovering the Pleasures of Real Beer with Real Food, will explain how refermentation helps maintain freshness and adds complexity to beer and will guide a tasting of some of the finest refermented beers available today.
