Silver Cow offers beer education classes

silver_cowBeer is a wondrous and often confusing substance. Questions abound like; where did beer come from? What is the difference between lagers and ales? How did different styles get their start? What foods go best with specific beers styles? All these questions and more are answered in the new series of beer education classes at King Street Beer District watering hole The Silver Cow/The Annex.

“We’re hoping those who are interested in craft beer or just beginning will get involved and more at ease when purchasing beer at the store or at the bar,” said owner Regina Heffington about the classes. “This is why we offer samples for customers to try because we want the customer to be happy with their selections and we’re here to answer any questions.”

Silver Cow bartender Kyle Rose led the first class, Beer 101, with a slew of interesting stories and facts that both entertained and informed. Armed with a notepad full of notes, Rose kept the gathering of beer pilgrims enthralled as they sipped several different beers and munched charcuterie matched to each.

In all, the hour or so spent at the class was pleasant, informative and satisfying. Beer samples were appropriate and the food parings were suitable.

Future classes will cover topics such as Belgian beers, sour ales and Bourbon barrel-aged brews.

Each class includes:

  • Four (4) different craft beer styles during the class
  • Charcuterie, fromage and fruit pairings – each matched with the beer
  • Class sheets and information to keep
  • 10% off food purchase at Silver Cow
  • 10% off of your container and growler fill of one of the beers used in the class
  • An extra $1 off Happy Hour price for one of the beers tasted during your class
  • 10% off Silver Cow packaged beer (or wine) to go
  • A Silver Cow sticker
  • A pint glass to keep

Classes are $20 each, reservations may be made at The Silver Cow/The Annex or by emailing info@silvercowjax.com. More information can be found at:  https://www.facebook.com/events/1676964462592719/.
