Almost every restaurant and bar serves craft beer these days. When you’re out at a bar or restaurant, how do you choose the right craft beer?
Craft beer bars typically offer a dizzying array of uniquely named beers that change regularly. Selections and variety are wonderful things, but they can make the ordering process a bit intimidating and daunting. You certainly do not want to order 16oz of something that is not to your taste.
Whether you are a beer aficionado with a wealth of beer knowledge, a seasoned beer drinker, or someone who is new to the craft beer scene, Hand Crafted Tasting Co.’s Craft Beer Festivals mission is to give you the opportunity to taste a large number craft beer selections, many seasonal, in one place at one time. No matter your level of beer knowledge, you will leave knowing more than when you arrived!
More than just a tasting event, you can take advantage of our Festivals learning initiatives. Discover what ingredients you like best in your beer at the Sense Lab, experience our interactive seminars presented by industry luminaries and have personnel one on one Q&A discussions with the Cicerones and industry experts in the Craft Concierge Center. Our Festivals are designed specifically towards helping you discover which brands and/or which specific beers appeal most to you.
Finally we offer some beers that are hard to find and not at every local craft beer bar. Be the first to sample some very unique offerings so you can make the suggestion to your favorite bar as to what they should pour next!
Have a great time and leave knowing exactly what you want the next time you head out to your local craft beer bar!
