Beer 101 & Sensory Analysis Class *Sold out

*This event is now sold out.

Ever wonder why a beer can be as pale as straw or as black as ink?  How about why certain styles favor bitter, citrusy flavors, and others have more sweet notes like a dessert? Please join us at the Wolf's Ridge Brewing tap room on January 14, 2017 from 10:00 to 12:00 for a very special class all about beer; from its long history and how we brew it, right down to how we drink and evaluate it's flavors and aromas.

This private class will begin with a tour of our brewery, an overview of how beer is made, and a brief history of WRB.  Following the tour, our head of quality control will guide guests through in-depth training on how to evaluate a beer's appearance, smell, mouthfeel and taste. Raw ingredients and 5 oz. beer samples of a few classic styles will be provided as hands-on tools for this sensory portion of the class.  Guests will also be presented two additional beers purposefully spiked with common, unwanted off-flavors that can negatively effect the brews we love. All levels of knowledge are welcome to take this introductory class (from beginners, to self-described beer geeks!).


Questions and open discussion are encouraged, and all guests will receive a complimentary pint of their choice from our 20-beer draft list after the class concludes at 12:00 PM, at which point our tap room kitchen will also open for service.  Tickets can be found following the link below.
