Beer Class: Understanding Hops

Instead of just knocking off those weak brain cells, how ’bout educating some of the hearty that have stuck around? You can do so at the University of Minnesota’s Campus Club this Wednesday.

The Campus Club regularly produces beer themed events for members, including our annual Oktorberfest and our spring Beer Testing. This is our first ‘class’ focused on a specific beer theme. Our presenter is Michael Agnew, Certified Cicerone (the beer equivalent of a Sommelier). His beer column appears each month in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

You will learn a lot about hops: History, Botanical Description, Production, Types, Varieties, Brewing Process, and Vocabulary. You will sample a spectrum of beers to gain a deeper understanding of this essential ingredient in beer.

You must reserve your place(s). $30 which includes light appetizers.

Call 612-626-7788. Non-members are welcome, but you must reserve your place.
