This is the first Beer Hear! post to announce the first Beer Hear! session, which will be on Tues. Dec. 7, 2010 at 6pm at the East Village Tavern, on the corner of Ave. C and East 10th St.! We'll be sampling some of our favorite winter holiday beers, which means Christmas beers for the most part. But who knows - maybe we'll also have a little Festival of Light (Beer), too! We'll post more info prior to the date. In the meantime, what are some of your favorite holiday beers?
Just a word about the hosts of the program - I've been homebrewing with B.R. for about 15 years. We've been members of the Brooklyn homebrew club The Malted Barley Appreciation Society that long, as well, and are both past presidents of the club. We're both extensively trained beer judges, we've taken many "beer vacations" through Germany, Belgium and elsewhere, and we're just overall fanatical about the combination of malt, hops, water and yeast! I'll let B.R. tell you about herself in her own post.
