ciceros.jpg Cicero’s Italian Restaurant continues their Winter Beer School semester this Wednesday from 5:30-6:30PM. Cicero’s Beer School provides background about beers and beer styles usually directly from people directly in the beer industry. It’s perfect opportunity to learn more about a style you’re unfamiliar with or to just brush up on a style you haven’t enjoyed in a while.

This week’s Beer School will be a very special event. Typically Beer School is a free event, but this week they’ll be featuring a fundraiser for Lift for Life Gym and it will be hosted by Mitch Turner of Major Brands. Mitch will be on hand to discuss and sample not only some beer that Major Brands distributes, but some food pairings along with the beer. Here’s a list of what your $10 donation will get you tonight:

  • Nectar IPA with pizza two ways (Andouille and pineapple)
  • Nectar Hemp Ale with an Italian hard cheese and pesto
  • Great Divide Hoss with rye bread and cherry spread
  • New Belgium Trippel with Havarti
  • Avery New World Porter with brownies

I’ve also heard there will be a very special guest on hand tonight as well!

Go out and take advantage of one of the few places where you can drink and learn! If you can’t make it out to the Beer School, you can check out all of the classes via podcast at
