Event Details

There’s more to lagers than Big Beer would have you believe. Originating in Germany, the word “lager” actually means “storage,” and was borrowed for this style of beer to reflect the fact that lagers are conditioned longer than most ales.

In this 2-hour class, expert beer judge and author Marty Nachel will delve into the many types of lagers out there — from the malty doppelbock and the crisp helles to the dark schwarzbier and the quintessential Czech pilsener.
Get ready to taste six examples of lagers as you learn how to identify their special characteristics.

As a special bonus, Cam Horn of Elmhurst Brewing Company will be here to talk about his approach to the style, as well as how he learned how to craft authentic German lagers under the guidance of a brewmaster with roots in German lagering that stretch back generations.

Must be 21+ to attend this class! We cannot process refunds for cancellations less than 3 days prior to class.

About the instructor:
Marty has been a BJCP judge since the program started in 1986 and he is now a professional beer judge at the Great American Beer Festival and FoBAB. He is the author of “Beer for Dummies” and “Homebrewing for Dummies”. He is also an instructor for the College of DuPage “Business of Craft Beer” certificate program.
