How to Taste Beer Like a Certified Beer Judge!

How to Taste Beer Like a Certified Beer Judge! Exploring Beer Through Four Main Ingredients

October 28, 5:30 – 6:30 Zoom Meeting

Join us for an educational (and fun!) tasting of six unique beers, each a great representation of beer’s four main ingredients: water, malt, hops and yeast. Our instructor, Chris Kolodziej, is the Training Manager for Lakeshore Beverage and a certified Cicerone (beer sommelier!).  We will learn how to taste and analyze beer, and also explore some of the bigger current trends  – hazy IPAs and sour beers.  To complete the tasting experience,  Dame Wei Fraser, (also a Cicerone)  has curated a selection of different cheeses to pair with the beer!
The House of Glunz invites you to purchase this assorted 6-pack at a special price of $14.00 (plus sales tax). Beer will be available for pick-up at the shop starting Tuesday, October 12. House of Glunz is open daily Noon to 8:00pm.  Delivery is available for a  fee anywhere in the city of Chicago and via UPS overnight for suburban deliveries.  Please order your beer no later than Monday, October 26.   Open to Dames and non-members too!
