Upcoming Beer School, "Just Can it". June 9th


The next beer school is called: "Just Can It." This school will showcase the resurgence of the use for the humble aluminum can in craft brewing. There are many advantages to canning and many big names in craft brewing are canning their fluids. That didn't sound right.. 

Email in early to reserve your spot,Sunday, June 9th, 7:30ish at Clive's Classic Lounge in the Chateau Victoria. Here is a list of the beers to be sampled:

1. Hilliards Saison 6% ABV Seattle
2. Maui CoCoNut PorTeR 6% ABV Maui
3. Four in Hand IPA 6.3% ABV California
4. Maduro Brown Ale 5.5% ABV Cigar City, Florida 
5. Fort George Oatmeal PA 4.8%ABV Astoria, OR
6. Might do a local six if we get a full house
As always you are there to learn. There will be history, glassware lessons, food pairing suggestions, a cheese plate to nibble on and prizes. The same format as always: bring a pen, your palate and $20. Email me or leave a comment to reserve your spot. There will be only 20 spots for this event. Do not delay as these schools fill up quickly..

Please forward this to any other craft beer loving friends who might like to attend. As always plan for a safe trip home.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again,
Ian

As a new guy to the "I have a computer and drink beers therefore I'll start a beer blog" world, I wonder the same thing. Self-validation? Perhaps. Learning more with every new beer? Usually. Because I'm just so damn witty the world can't live without my two cents? Absolutely!

In all seriousness, occasionally someone will tell me they learned something new or loved a beer I suggested and that is all I need. Indeed I learn from you and I enjoy your banter. Keep it up, Ian.

In all seriousness I enjoy doing it and occasionally someone will tell me that they learned something new or enjoyed a beer that I suggested, it keeps me going.

Keep it up,Ian. I look forward to your banter.
