Aimed primarily at “brewers, homebrewers, bar managers and prospective Cicerones,” but open to anyone interested in learning more about off-flavours in beer, the three day workshop is described as follows:
Have you ever had a pint that just didn’t taste right & wondered why it tasted that way? Beerology Sensory Evaluation Workshops are an interactive way to learn about the most common off-flavours that can occur in beer and where they come from. This in-depth workshop will allow participants to familiarize themselves with the mouthfeel, aroma and taste associated with a range of common off-flavours, followed by a discussion on how this off-flavour is introduced to beer and how to best avoid it. The final session allows participants to test their newfound knowledge and off-flavour recognition skills through a blind tasting.
The fall 2017 edition of the BSEW will be taking place on Friday November 24th to Sunday November 26th, starting at 12:00 noon each day, and running for 3 hours on Friday and 2.5 hours on Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets for the full workshop are available now via Eventbrite for $200. Single session tickets will be available for $80 on November 22nd if seats are still available.
