About Beer University

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!
