Mark your calendars for the nation’s biggest renewable energy event. This three day outdoor event is called the Renewable Energy & Sustainable Living Fair, organized by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, and held in the bucolic countryside in Custer, WI, June 15-17.
Central Waters Brewing will be providing the beer for the event and I’ll be leading to workshops on how to drink beer and save the world, emphasizing how breweries are using solar and wind energy, and biofuels, energy efficiency, and waste recovery to brew up a revolution in the beer industry.
Wisconsin is lousy with breweries and brewpubs so I’m planning to make a brewery tour out of it. We’re going to stay at the Crystal River Inn, a B & B in Waupaca, WI, which you can’t beat for 68 bucks a night. The fairgrounds also have plenty of space camping and tickets for the fair itself are cheap – $10 for a day or $25 for all three days.
I’m speaking Friday night at 5pm and again Saturday at 2pm. If you’re anywhere in the vicinity, come on out and say hello! I’ll be the guy drinking beer.
