At tonight’s Beer School session at the Great Lakes Brewing Company, drinking’s not only condoned -- it’s a requirement! Lesson one: Ice-cold isn’t always recommended. “It can alter the taste of the beer,” says spokeswoman Kami Dolney. “This is an opportunity for people to experiment and really taste the difference.” To prove it, students will put down their books, pick up their mugs, and sample some of the brewery’s award-winning beers<\!s>.<\!s>.<\!s>. at relative warm temperatures. “We’ll teach you how to get the full flavor of the beer,” says brewer Luke Purcell. The two-hour class also includes a tour, an ingredients tutorial, and tips on fermenting and packaging.

The course is designed for home-brewers as well as for folks who want to know everything about the beer that they’re drinking. At the end of the night, everyone walks away with a “Beer School Graduate” T-shirt and commemorative glass. This is one class you won’t want to be tardy for.
Wed., Feb. 21, 7 p.m.
