Geeks-n-Taps: Hip Hops
Get educated on beer culture and explore the wonderful world of hops!
Hop on over to Fullsteam and see what the buzz is about... Hops! Geeks-n-Taps is hosting "Hip Hops: The Sciences Behinds Hops". Hops are those green little artichoke-shaped things that make beer taste like, well, beer! You'll try a variety of differently-hopped beers and then you'll get to make your own
hop concoction. Learn the difference between sour and bitter, or what beer snobs mean when they refer to the "hoppiness" in a brew—so you'll no longer have to smile and nod while thinking "What the heck?" See how hops affect foam and learn what an IBU means. Meet a local hop farmer, learn about how these lil' nuggets are grown and then taste the differences of international hops from around the globe. You'll also get a quick break from all things HOPS and taste some odd infusions—how about some anise and juniper berries? Mm mm!
There will be two individual sessions, one at 6pm and at 7:15pm. You'll move from table to table as you sip, learn, and chat with experts. Your tickets ($15)
will give you access to 5 tastings, but feel free to chill after the show and have a big ole' pint of Fullsteam beer!
