Beer School Feb9th Ian's Dark Foley

Mrs. Left4beer has repeatedly said that she never married me for my brains. I do dumb things all the time. Book beer schools on dates that don't exist. Forget to bring beers to these events. My personal favourite was the time I scheduled a school on Mother's day! Yet again I have messed up, but this might turn out gooder. Too many beers have been purchased. That is right, this will be a six course beer school! The theme is all dark beers from various styles.

Email in early to reserve your spot ,Sunday, February 9th, 7:30ish  at Clive's Classic Lounge in the Chateau Victoria. The beers in no particular order:
1. Overcast Espresso Stout - OakShire Brewing, Eugene
2. Black Boss Porter - Poland (One of my favourite beers)
3. Take the Black Stout(Game of Thrones) - Ommegang
4. Victoria at Sea Imperial Porter - Ballast Point, San Diego. A coffee vanilla porter
4. Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA - Firestone. That's right Dave, A freakin, black rye IPA!
5. Bad Santa Cascadian Dark Ale - Pelican Brewing - Pacific City, Oregon

As always you are there to learn. There will be history, glassware lessons, food pairing suggestions, a cheese plate to nibble on and prizes. The same format as always: bring a pen, your palate and $30 (6 beers).  Email me or leave a comment to reserve your spot . There will be only 22 spots for this event. Do not delay as these schools fill up quickly. The last school filled in under three hours.
Plan for a safe trip home as always. We have six beers to sample and a few are more than 9% ABV

Please forward this to any other craft beer loving friends who might like to attend. As always plan for a safe trip home. Luckily, Monday is the long weekend.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again,
