Really what I wanted. A great start in higher beer learning -Participant

A laid back approach to understanding beer on a deeper level. A great class for bartenders and beer reps alike. Challenging to the taste buds and informative to those who want to know how beer goes wrong. -Participant

I definitely feel more confident doing beer tastings at the brewery. You went above and beyond what I expected from this class. Thank You! -Participant

 

There are three tasting workshops in the series:

Session 1 – Things that can go wrong at the pub

Friday, November 24th, 12:00pm-3:00pm

In this session, we will explore five common problems that can occur in the pub. Participants will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the mouthfeel, aroma and taste associated with each problem and to record and share their personal impressions. With each problem, there will be a discussion of how and when it might be introduced into beer.

Session 2 – Things that can go wrong at the brewery

Saturday, November 25th, 12:00pm-2:30pm

In this session, we will explore five common off-flavours that can occur in the brewery. Participants will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the mouthfeel, aroma and taste associated with each off-flavour and to record and share their personal impressions. With each off-flavour, there will be a discussion of how and when it might be introduced into beer.

Session 3 – Test your sensory evaluation skills!

Sunday, November  26th, 12:00pm-2:30pm

Having become familiar with a range of problem and off-flavours, we will now test our ability to identify them! Participants will sample off-flavours in a blind tasting and will be invited to identify the off-flavour present in five different samples.

SPACE IS LIMITED – SESSIONS HAVE A MAXIMUM CAPACITY OF 15 PEOPLE

The three sessions complement eachother and are best experienced when taken together as a course. The are therefore being sold as a series. After November 12th, should there be tickets available, there will be an opportunity to register for sessions individually.

GEEK ALERT ! These workshops are fun but they will cover some pretty technical information…

All sessions are taking place at Lansdowne Brewery

NOTE: If you would like to register 5 or more people from your organization, there are group rates available
