Ric Syberg and Andy Snead will try to warm you up this winter with an Amber Beer tasting on Wednesday, February 13th:

It’s cold outside, so come in and warm up with Andy Snead and Ric Syberg, our resident beer heads. This month, we’ll focus on amber ale, which is primarily a catch all for any beer less than a dark ale in color, ranging from amber to deep red hues. This style of beer tends to focus on the malts, but hop character can range from low to high. Expect a balanced beer, with toasted malt characters and a light fruitiness in most examples. Of course we’ll have salty snacks to keep the balance, along with plenty of water to keep you hydrated. It’s going to be awesome, which is what you’d expect, based on our prior beer classes.

You can purchase tickets here!
