Beer Off-Flavor Education Night

  • Spoonwood Brewing Co 5981 Baptist Rd Bethel Park, PA 15236 (map)

Have you ever been a craving a delicious, innovative craft beer...only to take that first sip and discover that something just isn't right? It's happened to us all and it's very unfortunate.

There are several outside elements that can effect the overall taste of your beer. And at this course, we are going to talk about them. It's time to learn when your beer isn't at its best at Off-Flavor Education Night at Spoonwood Brewing!

Brought to you as part of Pittsburgh Libations Week and led by Chris Staub, decorated home brewer with Best of Show award-winning beers two of the last three years at the T.R.A.S.H. Homebrew Competition, you will taste beer samples that have been spiked by the five most common off-flavors and learn about the potential causes. The five off-flavors we'll be evaluating are:

1) Acetaldehyde
2) Oxidized
3) DMS
4) Light Struck
5) Diacetyl

Chris will also be joined by fellow home brewers Gregor Bender and Sean Kinnas.

The class will feature beer samples from Spoonwood Brewing, as well as palate cleansers for all class participants. After the class, feel free to hang out, have a beer, and pick Chris's brain about the wonderful world of home brewing and off-flavors!

Only 30 spots are available for this class. Sign up today and lock yours down!
