ciceros.jpg Cicero’s Italian Restaurant begins their Summer Beer School semester this Wednesday from 6:00-7:00PM. Cicero’s Beer School provides background about beers and beer styles usually directly from people directly in the beer industry.

This week’s school is being taught by, well, me. I’m going to on hand to pretend like I know what I’m talking about and to teach about Witbiers.  We’re going to blind taste four different beers while I probably make a jackass of myself.

So, if you’re interested in seeing me stammer and muddle through a Cicero’s Beer School, tonight’s the night.  I’m sure I’ll see some of you there.

If you can’t make it out to the Beer School, you can check out all of the classes via podcast at Cicerosbeerschool.com.

But some of us don’t know the difference between an IPA and an APA. Knowledge is power and and Cicero’s and Schlafly are trying to educate us about beer with a new program they’re calling Beer 101.

This event will provide everyone with the basics of beer, giving you a breakdown of brewing, styles, and tasting of beer. Cicero’s and Schlafly will be offering this course at 6PM on Wednesday, September 3rd and Tuesday, October 7th.

This will be a fantastic introduction for some and a great refresher course for others.

globalIf years of watching PBS as a child has taught me anything it’s that education is a wonderful thing. You know what makes learning even better? Beer. Global Brew Tap House knows that beer and education are a natural mix so they’ve tapped (pun intended) their own Certified Cicerone Zachary Pohlman to lead beer school classes twice a month at their two locations.

Classes take place the first and third Monday of every month at the O’Fallon location and the first and third Wednesday at the Edwardsville location.
