There's a lot more in your bottle of craft beer than meets the eye: thousands of years of history, anthropology, science and biology have all led up to that beautiful beverage in front of you. Yes, it's delicious, but wouldn't you like to know why?
Beer U "classes" are held monthly to help you expand your beer knowledge--and your palate. These events are casual and conversational, and participation (beyond just drinking your beer!) is encouraged. Topics range from a variety of beer styles to history and sensory evaluation. And we are definitely proponents of hands-on learning: every class includes several samples of exceptional craft brews. Enroll in our Beer University for some higher education!
Without yeast, there would be (brace yourself, this will be shocking) no beer.
These ancient organisms have been around for thousands of years in numerous strains, each with their own characteristics that can radically affect beer's flavor. Join Stone's beloved blabbermouth, Ken Wright, and White Labs' Analytical Laboratory Specialist, Kara Taylor, to learn more about these microscopic miracle workers that make beer possible. You'll try several versions of the same brews made with different yeasts to help you discover just how influential man's *true* best friend can be.
Tickets are $32 (including tax & gratuity) and are available at the Stone Company Store Escondido or online here.
