The Secret of Hoppiness: A Talk and Beer Tasting

Do you enjoy a hoppy beer? Hoppy and bitter can be a misunderstood beer style. We will talk about malt structure and different hop varieties, characteristics, and flavor profiles. We’ll taste different styles of hoppy beers and learn how different temperatures and forms can impact flavor, aroma, and bitterness in beer. We’ll also taste beer with light snacks to see how food pairings can turn floral and citrus notes into a different hop-tastic adventure. Instructor: Brendan O'Toole
