elijahpsLearning is good. Learning about beer is even better. While drinking beer is definitely fun, I find that I enjoy something on a deeper level when I know more about it.

With that in mind Certified Cicerone® Zachary Pohlman is restarting his famous monthly beer school at Elijah P’s in Alton. Each moth Zach will feature different styles, breweries, or brewing techniques to give you a better peek behind the curtain in the wonderful world of beer.

This month Zach and Elijah P’s will be welcoming Revolution Brewing and special guest owner/brewmaster Josh Deth. Josh and Zach will be discussing and tasting:

  • Anti-Hero (American IPA: Ratebeer 96)
  • Galaxy Hero (American IPA: Ratebeer 98)
  • Eugene Porter (Porter: Ratebeer 97)
  • Deth’s Tar (Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout: Ratebeer 99)

This very awesome beer school will be taking place on Wednesday, April 13th beginning at 6:30PM. So, head out to Elijah P’s to drink and learn.
