Craft Beer 101

Thoroughly enjoyed this class! I appreciated that you didn’t pick beers readily available and we tried “new” beers. Learned many cool things about the science of beer making! Would have loved some pretzels or cheese ... you know, to cleanse the palate a little LOL! Would definitely recommend this class to friends!! Thanks for a great Friday night!

Craft Beer 101 Review

It was a cool experience, I learned a lot of interesting bits of information that I never even thought about, and tried some beers that I would have never thought to try. Keith added humor to the class too which made it more enjoyable.

Whiskey and Cocktail class

What a great way to spend a Friday night! A very knowledgeable instructor with a sense of humor made the class fun and very enjoyable. We will definitely be back and highly recommend! Cheers!

Wine School Coarses

Thus far, I've had the pleasure of completing the Wine Foundation, the Intermediate Wine coarse and some Advanced coarses at the Wine School of Phila. All have been outstanding! Both Alana and Keith are excellent teachers -- seriously knowledgeable about wine, but they also make the classes really fun. If you're intent on improving your wine knowledge in a professional and very enjoyable environment, I highly recommend the WSOP.

Spanish Food and Wine Pairing

I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband and we were looking forward to it. Our scheduled date was March 13th and despite the Coronavirus, we were set to go. However, my husband had to get some groceries for his 90 year old mother, who lives alone and was advised to stay put due to the Coronavirus concerns. My husband had to go to several stores to get her what she needed and we ended up being about 10 minutes late to the event. The door was locked. We knocked and no one answered despite the fact that the room was small and at least two other patrons could see us through the clear glass door. We knocked louder. No one opened the door. At about our 5th attempt, the instructor finally came to the door. We apologized for our tardiness to the instructor. (I am calling him our instructor, because he did not really introduce himself to us, nor did he ask our names) He set us up at the only table that had chairs with no backs, despite the fact that there were other unoccupied tables with more comfortable chairs. On a positive note, the food and wines were delicious and I learned some interesting things. However, there was not enough back and forth between the instructor and the people attending. In fact, not one of the other attendants even said hello to us. Overall, I would return, but would bring more fun people.

Editorial Note: Yep, this is what happens when someone is extremely late to a class: doors are locked and only the instructor can let someone in.  FYI, our students are awesome, so if you don't like them please don't come back.

I highly recommend the Foundation Program for people who have a general interest in food and wine, as well as those considering pursuing a degree or certification. As a professional chef and cooking instructor, this course helped me make more educated food and wine pairing suggestions. The school’s unique approach doesn’t rely on route memorization of names and regions. Instructors engage your senses so you don’t just learn about the wines sampled. You learn ‘an approach’ to tasting any wine and to deducing regions, flavors and pairings. I’ll be hanging on to my class notebook forever.
