Fresh Beer

Welcome to a new theme for our beer school- fresh beer! The idea this week was to go out and find a beer fresh off of a canning or bottling line, or even served fresh from a keg in a crowler or growler. Local beers abound in our lineup this week as members scrambled to call dibs on new releases announced as soon as hours before the class. Extra special shout out to Modern for opening their brand new taproom this past weekend- we missed drinking with you guys these last few years!

The winner this evening was Wolpertinger 2022 from Urban Chestnut. This Belgian Strong Dark Ale was well-balanced with a hit of booziness that was tempered by notes of Belgian yeast, figs, and caramel. Drinking this definitely has me ready to attend the Wolpertinger Festival at the Urban Chestnut Brewery in the Grove this winter!

Next week our theme is exactly the opposite of tonight’s with Aged Beer. Whether aged in a barrel, a member’s cellar, or on the shelves of a bottle shop we will be sampling beers that have had time to develop their flavors and discussing where age can help or hinder a beer.

Cheers!
