The Grand Bar will have superstar bartenders Cody Winfrey, head bartender at Luna, and Camrin Costello, bar manager at Soulful Soups & Spirits mixing up special cocktails.

LINC Malt and Badass Backyard Brewing will be tasting three beers meant to highlight the color, flavor and aroma malted barley contributes to brewing. Each beer is otherwise identical (same brewing process, same hops), but uses different malt. The difference is clear. In addition to sampling the beers, a tea with each malt used will be available to taste and help identify the malt character in each brew. These malts  being featured are made from Lyon barley, a varietal bred by WSU for production on the Palouse.
