CORNING, NY – How often do you get a chance to witness, live and in person, something that hasn’t been done anywhere else? On Saturday, September 24th, from 5:00-8:00pm Corning will be home for yet another innovative glass experience. Only this time, hot glass will be used to create something delicious. Craft beer!
In 2015, Douglass Schuckers, brewer at The Brewery of Broken Dreams, collaborated with local glass artists at Hands-on Glass Studio in “America's Crystal City” to create the world's firstGlass Bier at the 1st annual Hot Glass! Cool Brew!
Leave it to the folks in America’s “Crystal City” to put a hot glass twist on the traditional method of brewing Stein Bier. Imagine brewing beer by using a material as hot as volcanic lava!
With live hot glassblowing demonstrations, a chance to blow your own glass ornament, multiple craft beer tastings, and the special live boil of the wort—using gathers of molten glass which emerge from the furnaces between 2100°-2300°—the event will be back for its second year on September 24, 2016 and better than ever.
In addition to the delicious tastings offered by The Brewery of Broken Dreams, the event will also showcase the excellent brews of Pelham McClellan, brewer and owner of Market Street Brewing Company, which has been leading the way for craft beverage enthusiasts with their popular beers and exceptional food for nearly two decades.
Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event are limited to the first 80 people who register. Special V.I.P. tickets are also available and include a glassblowing experience and an exclusive opportunity for a more intimate interaction with the brewers.
*This event is limited to participants age 21 or older.
