Beer School

We're here to help you and your friends learn to like more than one kind of beer. There's lots of different beers to like. Some are made right down the street from where you live and others have to travel half way around the world to get to you. Learn why beer tastes like it does, how other styles came about, and all the verbs you might use to describe what you are tasting. The best part is the home work is beer!Beer School topics include: beer, culture, brewing, stories, guides to styles and much, much, more. You don't have to like every beer but don't drink the same beer day after day.

Imperial Irish Coffee Chocolate Milk Oatmeal Oyster Stout

Imperial Irish Coffee Chocolate Milk Oatmeal Oyster StoutStout is a very old style of beer. It's been around since 1700's at least. The style has always been loved but it's not always been popular. The running joke is "want a knife and fork to go with your beer" is unfounded. Stout, while thick and creamy, is often lighter, smoother and more flavorful then some icky American lagers. There are many different recipes for Stout including: Irish, Imperial, Milk, Oatmeal, Chocolate, Coffee and Oyster. Some consider the Porter style to be a Stout as well as the Stout style grew out of Porter beer. Today most breweries consider the styles to be distinct. Beers on the show:Almost every kind of stout.

Fruit Beer

Fruit BeerLots of people have the impression that fruit beer is "girly beer." That it tastes like sugared up soda pop. Fact is, fruit beer has been made for centuries. While some beers are made for a specific market and in fact do taste like sugar water some fruit beer can be more complex than wine. Exploring these wonderful beers can be lots of fun.

Root Beer

Root BeerRoot Beer is the invention of Charles E. Hires. As legend has it he discovered, developed, stumbled upon or borrowed (aka stole) the recipe while on his honeymoon. Charles trained as a pharmacist so he was probably keen to tastes and smells. He also was aware of what people liked of didn't like as they were sure to complain while picking up the stuff to end what ailed them. Hires become the tycoon of root beer overseeing it's production until 1925 when his son's took over the business. He died in 1937.There is no right way to make root beer. Brewers from around the world are up to the task of developing their own take. Several things is consistent though: it should have bite, it should feel creamy, adn the head should be big for this sassy drink to be considered classic. links:High Fructose Corn Syrup is okay to eat "fact" site.http://www.hfcsfacts.com/Barq's podcast about root beer.http://www.barqs.com/homework:Get a bunch of different Root Beers from your market and have a tasting party. everyone, especially the kids, are welcome to join in. be sure to get some awesome ice cream to make floats.

One Beer One Hundred Days

One Beer One Hundred DaysThe homework is what defined this show which was to buy two cases of something fresh then drink a beer every three days for 100 days. You have to take notes as you go noted that "nothing changed" or "it's changing" or "I like/don't like it anymore." It's the freshness experiment.Part of idea of doing this homework comes from us noting how beer changes over time at breweries that we visit. Sometimes beer changes for the better as it ages. We've also noticed that beer peaks. It gets really good at some point in it's life but from then on it's never as good. There are many factors that make a beer change over time some of these things act in tandem. Heat, light, cold, varying temperature, and time. HomeworkSee above.

Repeal Day

Repeal DayProhibition was repealed earlier in 1933 but the change to the amendement did not come into affect until December the 5th. On this day beer was delivered to President Roosevelt  who exclaimed "I think this would be a good time for a beer."2008 resembles 1933 in lots of different ways. Bank bailouts, financial ruin, people losing their homes and different groups trying to force their views onto the people. Prop 8 passing in California is a good example of this. Do a search for 1933 to see for yourself.HomeworkEnjoy a beer, wine or something mixed on December 5th. it's your constitutional right.

Fritz from 98

we're going on a field trip using the time machine. you don't need a signed permission slip. most of you won't need to worry about running into yourself but do leave your technology behind to avoid the off chance of losing it in the past. October of 1998 in Napa California our destination to hear Fritz Maytag speaking at the Northern California Homebrewers Festival. time travel being what it is lands us in mid sentence skipping the introduction. so it's a bit confusing for a minute. I think its worth hearing as it offers a perspective to what is happening in brewing today.Fritz talks for 26 minutes. if you get board or can't stand the audio skip ahead. nobody will be offended. sorry about the audio quality. remember it's 1998 and it's pretty good considering the source. remember... time travel responsibly. link: http://www.valhallabrewing.com/dboard/dbnewsl/t9811fritzmaytag.htmBeer School everywhere:http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=6351328213 http://youtube.com/beerschoolFollow JohnFoster and BeerSchool on Twitter.comHost: John Foster and MotorGuest: ThorBe sure to visit City Beer Store in San Francisco, CAEmail us at info@beerschool.comGood noon!
