This program is for patrons 21 years and older. An ID will be required the night of the event. His first program is German Wheat Ales which will will be presented twice, Thursdays April 6th and May 4th from 6:30 to 8:00. Space is limited so if you don't make these classes you can have your name on a list for the next ones.
David explains “While Germany is primarily known in the beer world for its clean, classic lager styles, the northern European nation also has a long history of brewing characterful wheat ales with unique and sometimes eccentric flavors. In this class we'll sample 5 traditional German wheat ale styles, discuss their unusual histories, and talk about how their ingredients create their distinctive characteristics.”
