What you'll learn in this beer tasting class:

This advanced course and accompanying tasting will engross you in the wonderfully complex world of hops which are the delicate, cone-like flower giving many of your favorite brews their delicious and complex aromas and flavors.

Hops are wonderfully diverse and are used for multiple purposes. Each variety imparts a uniquely different scent and flavor – from spicy, citrusy, pine-like, earthy to floral. 

Our course will comprehensively cover the essential properties and nature of hops: you will learn how to distinguish between hop varieties and their origins as well as how to harness them throughout the brewing process to produce a perfectly balanced homebrew. Learn how hops are used for flavoring, bittering, and preserving beer and leave with a deeper appreciation for the world of hops.

We will require that attendees provide a CDC issued COVID-19 vaccination card showing a fully-vaccinated status. There are no exceptions to this policy.

Very informative, and the instructor was fun and knowledgeable! Improvement could be made in the amount of distractions, as the course is taught inside the shop and customers were coming in and out making a decent amount of noise.

The course and the teacher were extremely informative and fun. The tasting part put the preceding lecture and slides into practical use and helped illustrate the differences between different hops. Warmly recommended!
