Event Details

If you are a homebrewer who would like to learn how to identify some of the more common off-flavors in your beer, or if you are interested in becoming a beer judge, this class is indispensable for learning about sensory evaluation.

Renowned beer judge, author and educator Marty Nachel will take you through six of the most common off-flavors found in beer — Acetaldehyde, Diacetyl, Contamination, DMS, Isoamyl Acetate, Papery — so you can identify their characteristics and learn what causes them. Feel free to bring one of your homebrewed beers to share and analyze in class!
