The first Tuesday of every month is free beer education at Growlers Pourhouse in Noda. Sample a few different beers and learn about where they are from, the style of beer, some of the ingredients used to make them, etc. Sometimes they also do food pairings with the beers. We will meet at 6:45 and I will try and get us the large table in the middle. Beer tasting usually starts at 7:30 but get there early because space fills up FAST! As more people come in, we should branch off and overtake some of the booths. I always feel bad for the people who have to stand! There is parking along the street (which is usually difficult to come by) and there is always free parking at the YMCA. Also, you can now buy and refill growlers of beer!
This months beer ed will feature beers from Mother Earth Brewing Company located in Kinston, NC. Looking specifically at Endless River Kolsch (bottles), Old Neighborhood Oatmeal Porter (draft), Dark Cloud Dunkel (draft), Silent Night (imperial stout aged in bourbon...also from the bottle.
