Beers From Here – A collaboration between local beverage producers and Triangle Land Conservancy to celebrate the lands behind local flavor. Each participant will lead exploratory foraging walks through nearby TLC nature preserves and produce a unique beverage inspired by and utilizing some ingredients collected during the walk.
On September 17th join Fullsteam Brewery of Durham as we explore the wild edibles of Horton Grove Nature Preserve. This 708 acre preserve has varied ecosystems and rich biodiversity along a 10 mile trail system less than 20 minutes from downtown Durham! Head brewer Brian Mandeville will guide this walk and provide information on plant identification and responsible, safe foraging practices** while seeking natural flavors for Fullsteam’s Farms Edge beer line.
Each producer has agreed to donate a portion of their sales from their beverage directly to TLC to support their efforts to to manage and protect wild and working lands around the Triangle. We will host a ticketed banquet in the evening on Nov 11th at TLC’s Irvin Farm preserve in Chapel Hill where you can try each of these unique brews accompanied by food from local chefs. More information on the banquet coming soon!
**Please note, foraging is only permitted on TLC properties under special circumstances and supervision of TLC staff.
