Food & Drink

Event Overview

The bartender just asked what "type" of beer you like, but you have a confession: you don't actually know what all those words on the label mean. You just think that Morning Wood, Arrogant Bastard, and Kamakazi Squirrel are kind of cool names. What's the difference between ale and lager, anyway? Why do Brits drink their beer warm--shouldn't be icy cold? Wait, Belgian beer is supposed to taste like bananas? And, scandal: Is it true that beer pairs better with cheese than wine?

In this class, dabblers will critically taste eight benchmark types of beer like cicerones do and pair them with food. We'll cover the history of beer styles around the world and demystify all the gobbidlygook about classifying them for the most important reason of all: finding what we like to drink.

Tiamat House is a bed and breakfast in a standard apartment building. There are no signs; think of it like finding a speakeasy. Buzz 4E, and if the super asks who you are looking for, ask for us by name: TC and Jeffrey.

Please notify us of any food allergies or restrictions in advance and we will do our best to accommodate!
