Explore the development of American beer styles such as California Common, American IPA, American ales, American stout, American lagers, wheat beers, and barleywines. Learn how to recognize these different styles and determine their quality. In this workshop we taste different interpretations, touch on ingredients used to make the
different beers, their history, and the process used to produce different styles.
