Milwaukee, WI • 10/8/2019 — MobCraft Beer Co-Founder Andrew Gierczak and employee Dave Olson did a little spelunking in the historic Falk Brewing Company’s beer cellar and successfully isolated a long dormant strain of lager yeast.

Admission to the talk is free and will take place Wednesday, October 16 from 6-8pm at MobCraft Beer – 505 S 5th Street, Milwaukee, WI. There will be plenty of Gier Bier to go around and a few prizes to be raffled off throughout the night!
