About this Event

Join Central Texas Mycological Society for a short ecology walk and brewery tour at Beerburg Brewing in the heart of the hill country. You will learn how fungi is entangled in all aspects of our lives even in our herbaceous beers. For example, did you know the flavor of mint comes from a type of fungi that protects it from insects and other parasitic fungi!?
This event is also great for people that want to sharpen their plant and mushroom ID skills and learn about the beer and medicinal benefits of plants and fungi. Recycled mushroom grow blocks for everyone that attends.
