If 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. The classes run from 6:30-8PM and will cost you $15 which will provide five 5oz samples per person.

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. Each class will offer something new and exciting, here’s a look at this week’s classes:

Boston Lager

Cream Stout

Wednesday, August 21 (Edwardsville): Sam Adams w/ Mo Mathew
