Many of you are familiar with brewer behind the finely crafted beers at Barley John’s Brew Pub up in New Brighton. On Saturday, October 20th at 6 PM (doors open at 5:45 PM) brewer Brian Lonberg will be hosting a beer tasting and dinner at St. Paul’s on the Hill church with tickets going for $30. All proceeds from the event will go to the church.
At the event you can expect a lecture covering different styes of beer, a Q&A with Brian, and to learn how to pair beer with food and incorporate into your home cooked meals.
After the beer tasting you will be able to try out some appetizers and take in some german music performed by the organ master of the church and some members of the choir. A german themed dinner and a silent auction will round out the evening.
Speaking of Oktoberfest, get into Barley John’s where you can to try out the 9.4% double decocted brew before it runs out. Barley John’s has a German brewing system so they make this one true to form.
