Belgian Beer Experience

Fri, October 7, 2016 from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm


Eventually,  every passionate beer lover takes a class on Belgian beer. After all, the beers are spellbindingly unique and diverse.  It’s incredible that a  country half the size of Pennsylvania sports more indigenous beer styles than anywhere else in the world.

In this class, you will  experience the essential Belgian beer styles; and learn why Belgium is beer heaven.  Under the tutelage of our best Beer Sommelier, you will learn about and taste some of our most prized Belgian beers: farmhouse, sours, trappists, and so  much more.
