A great opportunity will be presented when craft beer guru, our good friend, and President of the New York City Homebrewer’s Guild Chris Cuzme joins us in offering up a two-part course on the history and evolution of IPAs.

Chris will dive into the history of India Pale Ales from historical English IPA historical, through the evolution of American IPAs and Imperial IPAs. Of course no good education goes without taste tests, so your “tuition” will include tastings along with animated discussion. Special guests from local breweries (such as Sean McCain of Victory) will be in attendance to share and discuss their versions and chime in.

Class 1 – August 4th: The history and lore (and myths) of India Pale Ales, featuring English IPAs and traditional recipes

Class 2 – August 11th: New World IPA in America and the Craft Beer Revolution, featuring American and Imperial IPAs

Each class is $25, with tickets available here for Traditions or here for New World. Classes start at 7 p.m. and will last approximately one hour.
