Sensory Analysis of Beer
The Sensory Analysis of Beer classes are a series of non-credit sessions that will expose you to the differences between beer styles in the brewing industry. You will learn about beer style characteristics and variation for styles such as porters and stouts, various pale ales, sour beers, etc.
Each class includes sampling and learning about beers and beer topics relevant to the current craft beer industry. The classes are meant to be fun, educational, and act as social gatherings for people who like beer and want to learn more. Additionally, each month there will a local guest brewer who will join Beer Class and share their experiences and knowledge.
Classes are perfect for bartenders or those in the industry who want learning and networking opportunities. But Beer Class is designed for all people who love beer and want to learn more about beer.
