2016 Seminars

 

Session 1:

2:00PM
Sensory Training 101

Presented by: Kristyn Dolan, Certified Beer Judge, & Chris Dolan, Certified Beer Judge and Professional Brewer

Ever wonder why your beer may taste differently than it had a time before? Often, it could be a change in recipe for the better but there are also times when unintentional changes in fermentation, sterilization, bottling and/or storage can negatively impact the beer. Plus, the way retailers handle a beer can also cause these negative impacts. In this brief introduction to sensory analysis, participants will learn the basic steps to proper beer tasting and learn about several different off-flavors in beer. Attendees will have the opportunity to taste these off-flavors and discuss what they “sense” through proper evaluation. The seminar will also cover the causes of these flavors and solutions to potentially fix them.

This 45-minute seminar has limited seating. Come early to take your seat. Once all seats are filled, the seminar will be closed to additional participants.
