Past Event

Monday, March 11, 2013 7:00 pm

Ever wonder what the “beer experts” are looking out for when they evaluate beer? Well, there are a lot of potentially bad or “off’” flavors that can show up in beer. Join us at Hopleaf for a sensory training seminar and taste each of 24 “off” flavors that the experts train to know. We’ll also talk about the physiology of taste and the technique of tasting. If you have any questions before signing up, please contact Drew, Hopleaf’s Beverage Director (and the instructor) at or 847-204-3334. The session should last roughly 2.5 hours. Tickets $50—available soon at or go to and search for Hopleaf.
