Beer Class: The Beer Schism: Ales vs Lagers with Sommelier Laura Francis

March 6, 2019   |   6:00 pm

Price: $40


The Belted Goat

Likely one of the best beverage innovations of the Middle Ages, beer became a prevalent way of life, not only as a source of food, but also as a safe, potable water source. Yes, the Mesopotamians first discovered the crude beginnings of “beer”, but it was the monasteries we have to thank for the modern-day advances in beer. The two major styles of beer are ales and lagers, both originating in Northern Europe. Over the years, especially with modern technology advances, these types of beers have grown exponentially. Today, we explore the original classic styles from Germany, Belgium, and England alongside light pub grub to pair.

This class will be held at the Belted Goat. Tickets are $40 per person.
