November 15-19th – 2021
Every two years, the IWOBY (International Workshop on Brewing Yeasts) brings together yeast scientists and advanced brewers from all over the world seeking for the latest developments and innovations in brewing and other fermented beverages industries. An unforgettable event that allows you to enjoy the incredible patagonian natural surroundings together with the amazing local craft breweries and distilleries ecosystem. A set of unique social activities and amenities awaits you at the IWOBY 2021, as well as plenty of experimental beers brewed with new yeasts. IWOBY will provide you with a real taste of brewing science and innovation!!
The IWOBY is a NON PROFIT event organized by the Instituto Andino Patagónico de Tecnologías Biológicas y Geoambientales (IPATEC) from CONICET and Comahue´s National University, and CRELTEC Foundation.
The first conference took place in Bariloche city, Patagonia, Argentina in 2018. (see photos below)
Due to our global context, the 2nd meeting had to be postponed in 2020 and finally will take place on 20th-21st November 2021. The event consists of two full days of plenary presentations of renown scientists from all over the world, as well as a variety of oral and e-poster presentations together with a commercial exhibition from our sponsors and a fantastic brewery and distillery tour.
We have the pleasure to announce that previous to the IWOBY meeting (November 15-19th) the first practical course on Brewing Quality jointly organized by the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) and IPATEC will take place also in Bariloche. Last course programme: https://www.asbcnet.org/events/archives/2019qualitycourse/pages/program.aspx
The conference will take place in-person since we are optimistic that international travelling will be possible by that date.
Anyway remote/online coverage will be available too. If travelling is not possible for some participants due to health concerns related to COVID-19, we will make it possible for those individuals to participate remotely (online).
