Description:
The Beers of the British Isles:
U.S. microbreweries can thank Great Britain for much of their inspiration, as the United Kingdom is the only country in the world that still produces substantial varieties and quantities of ales. In this entertaining course, students learn the intricacies of pale ales, stouts, porters, and many other styles of British ales.

Held at the Brickskeller Saloon, each class includes a lecture and a guided tasting of approximately six beers.

Brown Ales and Milds:
Brown ale and mild were once common in British pubs, but were supplanted by pale ale and bitter. Today, these beers are making a modest comeback. Nick Funnell, head brewer, Sweetwater Tavern, with several locations in Virginia. He was a judge at the 1998 World Beer Cup in Atlanta.
