Six Beers. Sixty Minutes of Conversation.
It's arguable as to what was first made by man: beer or wine (there was, of course, mead, which trumped them both....though we'll save that for a later historical analysis), but in looking back through history, we do know beer has fascinated us for well over 7,000 years. You built the Great Pyramids at Giza? Then you were paid in beer for your work.
We hold beer in a special place in our heart, and we want to share our passion. So, for the next three Monday evenings, at our Chef's table, we'll lead you through a tasting of / dissertation on the greatest beverage on the planet (next to wine, of course).
Monday, June 3rd
-Beer 101: What is beer, exactly? How is it made, and what's all this noise about ales versus lagers? Top fermenting vs bottom fermenting? And what the heck does "malty" mean?! Find out why beer has been a beloved beverage since Hammurabi and his code. An intro to the what, who, when, where, and why, on one of the oldest fermented beverages on the planet.
Monday, June 10th
-Germany: If ever there was a Motherland for beer, it would be Germany. Home to one of the largest range of styles, and one of the longest histories in the beer world, Germany has much to offer. From frothy Hefeweizens, to dark lagers, to tart smoked beers, we'll take you on a whirlwind journey from Bavaria to Leipzig. Prost!
Monday, June 17th
-Belgium: A hushed silence must be observed when paying homage to the beers of Belgium. From the land of Trappist monasteries and windswept countrysides, come beers unlike any others, and whose influence can be felt throughout the modern beer world. Saisons, Tripels, and Geuze, oh my. Bring your monk's robe and glass goblet; you'll need them.
