Mika Laitinen showing taari brewing

Mika Laitinen will appear in the festival stream to show how Finnish taari was brewed.

Mika is a Finnish author and home-brewer who has written several books on traditional brewing. His most recent is Viking-Age Brew: The Craft of Brewing Sahti Farmhouse Ale.

Taari was a form of farmhouse ale brewed in eastern Finland, using the great Russian-style ovens. It is related to Lithuanian keptinis. Mika will give a demonstration of how it was done at 19:50 Norwegian time.

You’ll just have to join us to find out what this is.
