So we all know beer is great, but here are a few more things you should know about Ireland’s favorite tipple. Just a glimpse of what’s on at the next Beer Course at Dublin Bar Academy.
1. Beer can sometimes smell like cat piss!
And why that’s not necessarily a bad thing. We’ll talk about why.
2. Speaking of hops…
Did you know what other plant is very closely related to them?
(not that we condone this type of behaviour)
3. Learn how independent Irish brewers like Eight Degrees are taking on the big multinational breweries. And winning!
See how craft breweries market on a shoestring (or a G string in some cases)
4. Talk about testicles.
For the record this one has nothing to do with the previous pic! But you will hear about how some U.S. craft breweries are using some rather interesting ingredients in their beers.
5. And since we’re on the subject of meat…
…now is as good as time as any to mention the Charcuterie. We asked ourselves what we could do to make tasting 15 different great beers even more enjoyable. The answer was obvious…. Throw in some meat and cheese to go along with it.
