I am very excited to announce a new series of beer education classes that we will be leading at the Beer Study in Carrboro over the next eight months. I have been wanting to start a beer education program for a while now, and I’m excited to have been able to partner with the Beer Study as well as the NC Brewer’s Cup to make it happen.
We’ll be incorporating 24 different off flavors and discussing the beer history and styles from the UK, Belgium & France, Germany & Czech, and the US. The classes will be once a month from April through November, and you can sign-up for single classes or for the full eight-class course at a discounted rate.
**EARLY REGISTRATION SPECIAL***
Sign up between now and the end of the day on Saturday, April 6th and individual classes are only $15 (normally $20) or all eight classes for $100 (normally $135)!
For more information on the schedule and syllabus of the classes, and to register online, check out our “Beer Study @ Beer Study” page. Space is limited to 15 people for the off-flavor nights, and 20 people for the geographic style discussions.
Whether you are studying for the BJCP tasting exam or any level of the Cicerone program, these classes will be a great starting point. Or, if you are a homebrewer looking for how to reduce off-flavors and improve your recipes, you will be able to pick up some great tips from the course as well. Even if you are just a craft beer lover wanting to learn some more about your favorite beverage, this class will get you on your way.
There are no pre-requisites for the course. All are welcome, and we will be covering some beer basics as well as some more advanced and brewing process related items. No matter what your understanding of beer styles and the brewing process is, it is my goal that you will get something out of all of these classes.
So go ahead and sign up now, whether it be for only one class, a few select classes, or the entire 8-class series, and I look forward to tasting some beer and expanding our beer knowledge together!
