Philly Beer School

Never in the long history of drinking have beer lovers had it so good, with a brewing renaissance happening around the globe. The Beer School is your guide to the wide and wonderful beers of the world.  We offer classes for every level of beer lover: from the enthusiast looking to develop their palate to the home brewer looking to expand their craft.

Beer Tasting Classes

Our classes are lively, comprehensive, authoritative, and purely fun.  For beer lovers with a thirst for knowledge, our classes are a place to learn about  beer in all its glory.

In some classes, we demystify beer by  breaking down the grains, yeast, hops, and techniques that cause beer’s flavor to spin into thousands of  directions. In others, we take you through a series of easy-to-understand flights. In others, we take you on a grand tour of a specific beer region.  In almost all beers classes, we romp through beer history, styles and thirst-provoking stories.

Our instructors are funny, interesting and brilliant: you never quite know what’s coming next. It doesn’t hurt that we only pour the finest craft beer, either.  Our philosophy is that the best way to learn about beer is pouring the best beer available and studying them.

Even if you are  a seasoned beer connoisseur, our classes covers beer in such breadth and depth you will never be bored. At the same time, our enthusiasm on the subject –who doesn’t love great beer?– makes  it seem fresh and new again

Beer Brewing Courses

At it’s core, the Beer School celebrates the joy of brewing great beer. Our brewing courses  are for everyone: the passionate beginners love our simple-but-complex style;  intermediate brewers are excited by our ability to go deeper; and for true geeks, learning from a master brewer instills inspiration in every class.

From mastering brewing an Imperial IPA to a classic Saison to crafting your own recipes, the Philly Beer School will help you reach your goal. Our instructors are talented brewers who will lead you all the way toward brewing nirvana.

Come and take a flavorful tour through the world of craft brews with the Beer School!
