Off Flavors Workshop

Learn about the Main 8 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:

*8* Off-flavors
1 control beer

Beer Style Breakdown: Germany

This is a curated study group. I will select and purchase all of the styles according to the BJCP.

We will split the cost of the beers amongst all of us. Bring $15-30 cash.

The flight of beers will follow a specific trend/theme designed for breadth and depth where possible.

We will go over the beers together and spend time researching/discussing the brewery, the beer itself, the style, food pairings, etc…

This will be fun and light hearted, but the goal is to have a place where we can be a little more focused and organized, so the only other request is that you take it seriously, and keep chatter down to a minimum.

🙂

Must be 21, or over, to attend.

Each group starts at 6:30pm
