There are 80 internationally recognized styles of beer, and we will explore half of them, focusing on the stronger ales, porters, stouts, Belgian, and specialty beers. Through tasting and discussion, you will learn how to recognize these different styles and determine their quality, using the same criteria Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) judges use. Learn about 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 September. You may take either workshop or may sign up for both.)
