Carillon Brewing to host historical beer tasting guided by local expert

One beer is being brewed specifically for the Sunday afternoon event

Carillon Brewing Co. on the grounds of Dayton History’s Carillon Park will host a historical beer tasting guided by local beer expert David Nilsen on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 17.

The event is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the brewery at 1000 Carillon Blvd. in Dayton.

The tasting will be led by certified Cicerone and beer journalist and educator David Nilsen of Greenville.

Nilsen will talk about the history behind Carillon Brewing Company's rustic beer styles while guiding attendees through a tasting of six 5-ounce samples.

One of the beers was brewed specifically for the event. Attendees will sample a Lichtenhainer, which Nilsen called “a historical German style that's very difficult to find from modern breweries.”

Carillon Brewing, which opened in 2014, makes beer using historical recipes and methods. The facility is designed and built to evoke an 1850s-era brewery, and offers free tours and demonstrations. Costumed “interpreters” at Carillon Brewing detail Dayton’s brewing history, and visitors can see how beer, cider, wine and root beer were made in the middle of the 19th Century.
