We keep our events simple, informative and just plain fun. No hot pokers in your beer, no foot races, no release parties for the next beer we put peanut butter in, just 'to the point' galas. Our wine seminar's are usually taught by people with 30+ years of experience, our Sunday beer flights will feature beers you won't be able to taste elsewhere and our weekend wine flights are like mini wine classes at your leasure. We do 4-5 mini-beer festivals a year (usually on Sunday) that are major bashes; our Trappist Festival features 18 different Trappist beers, our Bockfest features every great Doppelbock from Bavaria (many from monasteries), September is Octoberfest month, and we usually feature 10-12 rare Bavarian festbiers you also won't fine elsewhere for the entire month. Stay tuned, we will try and post far enough in advance to help you plan ahead.
Wine is a very important part of our program. As is the education part of it. Wine can be so overwhelming at times, but it doesn't have to be. We break down the world's finest wine regions in our seminars and showcase the best producers and wines from that particular region. It's a fun, informative setting and educational in the coolest way.

Georgia is generally considered the ‘cradle of wine’, as archaeologists have traced the world’s first known wine creation back to the people of the South Caucasus in 6,000BC. These early Georgians discovered grape juice could be turned into wine by burying it underground for the winter. Some of the qvevris they were buried in could remain underground for up to 50 years.
Georgians are rightly proud of their rich and historic winemaking culture, and as traditional methods enjoy a renaissance, the qvevri - an earthenware vessel used to store and age wine for thousands of years has becoming the unofficial symbol of the country. Georgian wine importer Kevin McKinney is going to lead us through these historic wines and explain in detail how they are made, and their importance in the wine world. We will explore every great wine grape and region in detail.
We are going to be doing these Wine Flights for the entire weekends scheduled. They will start Friday at noon and end Sunday at 6:00pm. A different theme every tasting, with detailed notes to learn about each wine. We are going to schedule them twice a month.
