Beer Off Flavors Workshop

Learn about the beer off flavors, how to identify them, and how to correct them.

A large part about improving yourself as a brewer is understanding how to identify off flavors, how they are created, and how to avoid them. These skill sets are also important for bartenders, servers, restaurant/bar owners.

The average beer consumer should also be aware of how to identify these flaws, and how to politely address the issue if they are served a flawed beer. Not all flaws are equal, and some “flaws” are acceptable to a certain degree in many styles. This course will serve as a building block for building your overall beer knowledge and appreciation.

This 1.5 hr class will provide samples of a control beer that has been dosed with the chemical compounds that we associate with the most common off-flavors in beer production and draft dispense. Includes:

*6* Off-flavors
1 control beer
Guided tasting/instruction

Must be 21, or older, to attend. Valid ID MUST be present at tasting.

El Matador Can Release Party

Would you say you have a plethora of love? Do you even know what a plethora is?

Would you like to drink a delicious beer and not even bother debating whether it is a Black IPA or a Robust Porter?

Would you like to eat some candies named after some book, and watch a spoof that takes its name after the same?

 

This is a beer and a day dedicated to our friend Jeff McCue. He left a whole lotta love and good vibes behind for us. And he also left his homebrew recipe book.

We pulled this recipe, his wife Betsy’s favorite, and brewed it to celebrate Jeff.

Join us on Friday, 2/23/18 all day as we celebrate the one and only Jeff McCue.

The Movie will kick off at 6:30pm
