The Language of Craft Beer
Learn all about the world of craft beers, from tasting and pairing to brewing methods, language, and more! Zach Mack, the owner of Alphabet City Beer Co., a craft beer store and bar in the East Village, will start with a discussion of different beer styles across the spectrum---bitter IPAs, sour goses, Berliner weisses, peppery saisons, toasty stouts, and much more. After a brief style history and an overview of the vernacular to describe them, we'll move on to food-pairing suggestions and samplings. Finally, we'll have a Q&A session to answer everything you always wanted to know about the world of craft beer drinking, brewing, and industry!
