Nathan Zeender, head brewer at Right Proper Brewing Company, will host a special Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) edition of History & Hops at the Heurich House Museum on Thursday, April 13, 2017. Zeender has curated a tasting experience that features Right Proper’s Berliner Weisse beer alongside sherries, vermouths, and ciders. The evening will also include special guests Chantal Tseng, sherry educator, and Kat Hamidi of Capitoline Vermouth. During the event, which takes place from 6:30 to 8:30pm, visitors will also have the opportunity to explore the Heurich House Museum, historic home of brewer Christian Heurich.
Zeender’s appearance continues the 2017 season of History & Hops featuring local industry insiders who bring their distinct taste and knowledge to each event. A homebrewer who turned his passion for beer into a career at Right Proper Brewing Company, he is known for his mix of fermentation techniques that yield elegant beers with complex flavors. Zeender’s penchant for yeast and the variety of ways in which it can be used, shines through in his unique and playful beers. Since opening Right Proper Brewing Company in 2013, he has been a part of the development and brewing process of over 85 different beers.
This special edition of History & Hops, one week earlier than the regular schedule, also gives guests the opportunity to take part in the CBC experience. The CBC is the Brewers Association’s craft brewery industry conference, and the event will bring thousands of brewery professionals to Washington, DC from April 10-13.
