We’ve historically heard it a LOT: “Wine is serious...beer is fun!” This was the prevailing wisdom for centuries...until recently…
What people are realizing now, though, is that gourmet craft beer can be as serious a beverage as wine, and even more complex, with infinite style variations and a broad food-pairing range. What people are now asking is, “What beer should I have with X, Y or Z food?” This course is designed to give you the confidence to help you answer that question knowledgeably
This course is a guide to craft beer. It will give you the pointers you need on a day to day basis. Consider it the “Cliff’s Notes” of craft beer creation and food pairing.
We discuss ingredients, the brewing process and other peripherals. By the end of the course you’ll understand the creation process for beer (after all, you should know what it’s made of and how it’s made), craft beer styles, craft beer tasting (appearance, aroma, flavor and mouthfeel), glassware (no plastic cups here, folks) and importantly food and beer combinations. You’ll understand various meals, chocolate, cheese, desserts, and how to pair them with appropriate beers.
Now, I’m here to help...it’s what I do...it’s what I love. If you have any questions about beer—at all—don’t hesitate to ask. I’m fortunate enough to have surrounded myself with some of the most beer-knowledgeable people in the world. In the event I can’t answer your question, I’ll certainly do my best to get it answered.
