On December 16th & 17th NYK was at the 2019 Empire State Barley & Malt Summit. The program encompassed an array of presentations and panels including industry experts, farmers, brewers, professors and more.
So why did NYK attend? Well, our mission is to educate, engage and excite guests about the agriculture, craft beverage and culinary industries of New York State. Barley is one of the most important agriculture products grown in NYS today, barley is then germinated to make malt which is used in craft beer (fun fact, today there are 462 craft breweries in NYS…that’s more breweries than wineries!) and barley can even be used in culinary aspects.
Many of those that attended the Barley & Malt Summit will be featured in upcoming classes and events at New York Kitchen in 2020 -> stay tuned for more information!
In the meantime, below are some videos links presented at the summit that we think you will enjoy;
