Know the difference between an IPA and ESB? Curious about the ingredients that go into beer? Essentials of Craft Beer will broaden your understanding of the boom in craft brewing by exploring the ingredients, styles, process and history of beer. We'll talk about the basics of brewing, pairing food with different beers, how the craft movement evolved from brewing's rich traditions and some of the business trends that have impacted the industry. Plus, we'll sample a variety of styles to explore how brewers combine art and science to achieve different tastes. Join us at Big Lick Brewing Company from noon to 5pm on Saturday, February 22, for a one-day journey through the world of beer. Please note all participants must be 21 or older.
