As part of an on-going series, the Poudre Heritage Alliance presents monthly educational pub talks at local establishments throughout Northern Colorado. Join us for a Pub Talk on April 23, 2020, 6-7 pm, at Purpose Brewing and Cellars in Fort Collins, CO. For the April 23 pub talk, Michael Mosher from University of Northern Colorado’s Brewing Laboratory Science program will provide an update on his collaborative research project on beer and wood aging between UNC, brewmaster Peter Bouckaert, and Squarrel Company.
Mosher earned brewing degrees in both the U.S. and the United Kingdom, worked as a brewer’s assistant, and has been a home brewer for more than 20 years. The Beer and Wood Aging pub talk in 2019 was a hit, and we are excited to have Michael back at Purpose this year!

Poudre Pub Talks are a series of FREE educational presentations, open to the public, presented by the Poudre Heritage Alliance, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that manages the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area.
Come pedal along the Poudre bike trail while learning about the history and heritage of the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area. As one of only 55 National Heritage Areas in the country, participants will discover what makes this river corridor so special as Heritage Culturalist volunteers guide them along a three hour, 6+ mile biking tour of historic and natural sites. This tour will begin at Watson Lake in Bellvue and finish in downtown Fort Collins – approximately 6 miles one way or 12 round trip. This event is open to all skill levels. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help procuring a bike for the tour.
