Beer lovers take notice!  There are 80 internationally recognized styles of beer, and in this workshop you will explore fully half of them, focusing on pale ales, lagers, pilsners, wheat, and rye beers.   Through tasting and discussion, you learn how to recognize the different styles and determine their quality using the same criteria Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) judges use.  You will also discover the ingredients used to make the different beers, their history, and the processes used to produce them. (Please note that a workshop on different varieties of beers is being offered in October.  You may take either workshop or may sign up for both).
