Press release:

Sensory Analysis of Beer Class Starts June 6

A-B Tech’s Craft Beverage Institute of the Southeast’s Sensory Analysis of Beer class begins Monday, June 6. This class is conducted Mondays and Wednesdays through June 15 from 6-9 p.m. at the college’s Asheville campus.

The class explores the origin of beer characteristics and teaches descriptive and critical tasting techniques — meaning participants will be able to tell people why they like a particular beer or not. Students will learn how to identify raw materials in finished beers and gain a deep understanding of how ingredients affect flavors and aromas. Also covered are how to detect common “off” flavors and how to prevent them.

Students must register in person at A-B Tech’s Asheville campus or A-B Tech Madison. Students must be 21 and provide a valid ID at registration. For cost and more information, call (828) 398-7934.
