Join us for our 2nd installment of The ABV Club, a monthly series we’ve created to highlight various aspects of the (local) world of craft beer. This month, Chef Nathan Berg will be joined by Will Glass from The Brewing Projekt to do an in-depth discussion and tasting of a wide variety of hops.
The flowers that serve as the bittering agent for ALL beer, hops are all-too-often just associated with IPAs and other heavily-hopped beers. But the truth is, there are hundreds of varieties of hops, each with a unique character that can be imparted within a brew. Some are subtle and floral. Some are aggressive and citrus-y. Some are none of those things. For this event, we’ll be tasting around 8-10 unique varieties of hops, singled out to showcase their specific profiles, as well as discussing what styles of beer they match well with. We’ll also be tasting a few different beers from Brewing Projekt’s “Dare Mighty Things” series, all of which have been created to feature a single variety of hops and it’s qualities. This is a really exciting event for any craft beer lover – or homebrewer – who would like to dive a little bit deeper into their glass of beer.
The fun begins at 7:00pm and will last approx. 1.5 hours.
