Craft Beer Series at Library

Winter is the perfect time of year to enjoy porters and stouts. These styles feature dark malts that evoke coffee, chocolate, and other comforting, warming flavors, and they can be the perfect companion to a cold winter night.

As we will discuss in this class, porters were the first style of beer to be brewed on an industrial scale during the early days of the Industrial Revolution, and they were once the most popular beers in the world. Our class will look at the history of porters, learn how they evolved into stouts, and unpack what sets the two families of beer apart from each other. We will then taste through 5 excellent examples of porter and stout substyles.

These Craft Beer Education Series classes will be lead by beer journalist and Certified Cicerone David Nilsen and will be held on February 28 and March 7 (identical classes). These classes are free, but seats are limited and registration is required. Please call the Greenville Public Library at 937-548-3915 to reserve your seat. We hope to see you there!
