Downtown Spirits - Seattle

Around the World in 8 Beers


Back-To-School Series

October 1st, 6:30 - 8:00pm
Around the World in 8 Beers 

Beer has been a staple in human culture for millennia. As a result, different beer styles have emerged in different regions of the world. 

Join us as our Beer Buyer Jon Olken leads a class that spans from the old world to the new world. We will be tasting classic, and not so classic, examples of beers from around the globe. We will also be discussing the history of beer, how beer is made, and why certain styles appeared in certain regions. It's like a history class, beer class, and world tour combined into one tasty event. You won't even have to leave your seat to experience the delicious world of beer. 


Downtown Spirits' Back-to-School Series kicks off this Fall! This is a set of classes led by our buyers and specialists. Sit in on a class taught by our Sommelier and Wine Buyer, Shelly Fitzgerald, CS and our Beer Buyer, Jon Olken. Each class includes a guided tasting, course material, and tasting flights. You will leave with a greater understanding of wines, beers and ciders.

Tickets to each class can be purchased separately or as a series for a discounted rate ($90.00 for five classes).
