The 5pm Post – From the Events Calendar, PoP Picks…

Brewmaster’s Ingredient Series:

Washington Wine Academy
1201 South Eads Street
Arlington, VA
Wednesday, September 19th, 2012
7:30pm – Wed 9:00pm | $45.00

Beer- its only as good as the sum of its parts. Those parts- the Hops, the Barley, and the Yeast- are what were examining for our next series of beer classes! We look at one
ingredient a night so come learn about the importance and influences on specific styles while tasting examples. Each night will feature six beers which will showcase the specific hop, barley, or yeast so you can discern the differences between East Kent Golding and Simcoe (hops, of course)! There will be cheese and sausage to keep you sated as we break down brews into what really makes them unique.

While no prior beer knowledge is required, we do recommend at least a familiarity as we will not be covering basics in this class.

Your teacher is Mike Reinitz, homebrewer extraordinaire who recently came in second in a DC home brew competition and will have his beer brewed by DC Brau. He also works part time at 3 Stars Brewing.

Wednesdays September 19th, 28th, and October 3rd- classes will start promptly at 7:30 so please arrive by 7:15. They will end at approximately 9:00 pm
