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!
Join Stone's very own barrel wizard, otherwise known as Research & Small Batch Manager Steve Gonzalez, for an evening dedicated to the delicious magic that results when a beer spends a good portion of its life inside a barrel. And when that barrel's previous occupant was a spirit or wine, things get really interesting! You'll get to sample tasty examples of beers that have had long and intimate relationships with barrels as you learn all about the art and science of how wood transforms great beer into something extraordinary.
Tickets are $32 (including tax & gratuity) and are available at the Stone Company Store Escondido or online.
