During a seven-beer tasting, Engert will guide you through beer's incredible flavor spectrum detailing the beverage's long and complex history, from the tart and smokey flavors characterized by brewing in the early days of civilization; to the spiced-then-hoppy ales of the Middle Ages; to the malty, roasted, and finally crisp flavors created during the Industrial Revolution.

He'll also discuss proper methods of storing, serving, and tasting beer. While you sip on these brews, you'll nosh on appetizers, including a variety of artisanal cheeses; cured meats; a baguette; and accoutrements including mixed olives, mustard, and cornichons.
