Beer Goggles Classes in the new year

Hey folks! Just your friendly craft beer cyborg checking in to give you the skinny on the upcoming series of craft beer classes. I have put together a journey through the world of barley (and a few apples) that will take us to many far off (and a few oddly familiar) places.
The classes will go as follows:

Always Look on the Light Side of Ale
Join the Dark Side
Belgium? I Hardly Know Um!
Merry Old English Ales
Round the Cape: The Pale Ales That Went to India
Big Bad Apples
Eat Your Wheaties
Cyborg’s Choice (it’s gonna get weird and delicious)

I’ll be posting the beers for each week’s class at the beginning of the week.
Classes will start Thursday Jan 15th at 6:30pm (and each following Thursday thereafter) and should run about an hour.  Classes will be limited to 15ppl max, sign up early to assure you a seat.
The cost is $10 BUT those who attend the class will get a $10 credit towards the purchase of beers off my Wall of Awesome (the craft beer shelves).

Hope to see you there!
