In our Beer Schooled survey, we asked everyone what kind of classes they would want to see us teach. The overwhelming majority stated Sour Beer Class. We’ve listened and have just the class for you. We also have a very special guest instructor.
Nicole Erny of the Cicerone Program and Brewing Network fame will be coming to the area to moderate a Philadelphia Cicerone Exam on April 5th. We’ve convinced Nicole to stay a little longer and teach a class on sour beers. Nicole will walk the class through how sour beers are produced as the class sips on various sour beers from Belgium and the United States. Some styles of beers the class will touch on are Flemish Red, Lambic, and Gueuze.
About Nicole Erny
Nicole is a Certified Cicerone TM, the beer world's equivalent to sommelier. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. Nicole stands out in her field as one of the youngest and one of few female Cicerones. She has specialization in Belgian and West Coast American beer, but is fascinated by beer emerging from Italy and Scandinavia. Though she loves the sensory analysis aspect of beer, her favorite activity is connecting people with beer that they can enjoy!
