ENRICH-0710 – Beer/Cult In-Person: Belgium & Belgian Beers (ENRICH-0710_BEER)

Beer Tasting—Belgian Style

Belgian-style craft beer is more than just a passion for Ryan Evans—it's a way of life. And fortunately, he enjoys sharing his way of life. Discover what makes Belgian-style beers special in the ever-changing world of craft beer in the United States from Evans, co-founder of the Denver-based brewery Bruz Beers. Join Evans for a guided tasting of the major categories of Belgian beers—including eight beer styles—as you learn the history and characteristics of each. Get a list of international beer brands that you can buy locally so that you can continue tasting some of the world's best beers right at home! Tour the brewhouse, meet the brewers, and enjoy candid conversations and a question-and-answer session with the team. Evans also shares plenty of educational details and photos of trips to Belgium (Bruz hosts annual journeys) where travelers visit the Belgian Beer Festival and several breweries. “These trips are always instructive, so that’s why I like to discuss them,” Evans says. “We sample many styles and learn what makes each one unique—sometimes it’s something like leaving the tanks open to let natural yeasts in the air help fermentation.” Whether you’re a beer lover or are just curious about it, this course offers insight and knowledge with hands-on learning, and more importantly, tasting! Guests must be 21+.
