About the Event

This beer off-flavor class will teach participants to identify the common off-flavors found in beer. Seven different off-flavor compounds will be tasted and discussed in this two hour class. Registrants will be provided with spiked samples of Acetaldehyde, D.M.S., Diacetyl, Isoamyl Acetate, Papery, Line Infection, and Lightstruck. Instruction will be given to aid the development of off-flavor and common sensory vocabulary. Students will learn the origins of each flavor compound and why they are not always “off.” Participants will become familiar with the attributes of a potentially off-tasting beer. This sensory training class is designed for those who work in a brewery, home brewers, and craft beer enthusiasts. Upon completion of the course, students will congregate at Innovation Brew Works to enjoy a glass of their choice of house beer.  Join us and learn how to evaluate your beer like a professional!   


This class is lead by Gavin Harper, Master Cicerone®, BJCP Certified Judge, and Brewmaster.


Participants must be a minimum of 21 years old with valid photo ID.
