Martin Thibault has been seeking out farmhouse brewers all over the world for almost one decade now. He writes about his finds on his blog, in American beer magazines, and in French-language books.
Over the years he has visited farmhouse brewers in Lithuania, Norway, Estonia, Finland, Peru, Bolivia, Bhutan, and Ethiopia.
During the festival Martin will give a talk on what he’s found on his travels. The talk will be at 2030, European time.
