Are you interested in beer, but want to learn more about it? Are you an IPA fan … but can’t quite recall what those initials mean? No matter, as this class delivers the insights you need to improve your appreciation for the world of beer and other similar fermented products. It will help you master the history of brewing, increase your knowledge and appreciation of key beer styles and regions, and enhance your enjoyment in personal, social and professional circles.
Over three weeks, we’ll touch on the history of beer, look at how beer is made and consider common (and not-so-common) beer styles as well as the regions in which they originated. We’ll learn about the American Craft Brew Revolution of the past 25 years, including the rise of breweries and growlers in Georgia the Southeast, and consider food and cigar pairing tips and serving recommendations for different beer styles. We’ll also look at mead, cider, metheglin and other fermented non-beer products.
This class will be held at Bacchus Wine Shoppe & Beer and Growlers in Hiawassee, where 15 taps of fresh craft beer enable select samples as an adjunct learning aid for this course. Take this class to learn more about the essentials of beer -- how it’s made, what to look for in various styles, and to come away with the info necessary to become a better beer authority!
Ed and his wife Linda are co-owners of Bacchus Wine Shoppe & Bacchus Beer and Growlers, on the shores of beautiful Lake Chatuge in downtown Hiawassee. In 2018, Ed and Linda will celebrate their seventh anniversary as owners of Bacchus.  Both Ed and Linda bring years of passion for wine, beer and cigars to their roles within the Shoppe, and welcome any special requests or questions from customers and neighbors.
