From California to Maine–we are going to explore the greatest breweries in the United States.
Great beers are about places, not just where they’re made, but where we get to drink them. And one of our favorites is right here in Philly. We may not get to travel across America in two hours, but the Philly Beer School is an amazing place to learn about beer.
If you are a beer aficionado, or want to be one, this is a class for you. We have written a road map to the great breweries all around the country, and this is our way of sharing it with you. It’s an irreverent but informative a guide to craft beer across the United States.
No matter who you are, this beer class will give you fresh perspective on the Hop Revolution that has quietly overtaken our land, one pint at a time. We’ll awaken a thirst for America’s craft brews if it’s the last thing we do.
In this class, we chart the wild and engrossing story of beer, showing how America has been “under the influence” at almost every stage of our history. From sea to foaming sea, this class will hoist the flag of the beer nation.
Suds have claimed an outsized place in our culture that far transcends its few simple ingredients—water, barley, and hops.It’s story is as diverse and fascinating as our country itself, overflowing with all the color and character of America’s many peoples and regions.
Americans consume some six billion gallons of beer each year. We are a country that loves drinking beer. Fizzing with fun, all of us delight in enlightening glimpses of the coolest aspects of our nation’s craft-beer renaissance. Craft beer is a whole new way to see and taste America.
Whether you prefer a crisp lager, resinous IPA, roasty stout, or funky farmhouse ale, the Beer America class answers that age-old question: What do I want to drink? Welcome to your new field manual soaked with happy memories.
