Pour Boys present: James Joyce Monthly Beer Tasting: Belgian Styles, Amer. Style

As the collective American beer palate has become more sophisticated, Belgian beer styles have become more popular.  Many US craft breweries now include one or more in their line-ups, and a few US and Canadian breweries specialize in these styles.  What makes them special?  Primarily it boils down to the yeast varieties and artisanal brewing methods which result in complex aromas and flavors, characterized by phenols and fruity esters.  While Belgian-made beers cover a wide range (eg, Stella Artois lager), here we're just talking about ales.  For our April James Joyce beer tasting, we plan to cover Witbier, Amber, Strong Pale, Strong Dark, Tripel, and even Quad (barring last minute subs), all made in the US.

Whether you're a sophisticated Belgian beer aficionado ;), or adventurous, or just curious, please do come and join us the evening of Wednesday, April 3rd, for an exceptional selection of Belgian-style Ales!  Six pours of up to 6 oz. each (depending on the beer).  Your cost is $12 for the tasting, plus $3 for a J.J. Tasting Glass - if you don't already have one from a previous tasting. Runs from 7pm to 10pm; show up any time in between and taste at your own pace, in whichever order you like.  Don't forget your glass!
