On Saturday, January 21st, a few Boundary Bay Brewery folks will be at Bellingham Technical College (BTC) teaching about Winter Beers. Join Anthony, our Assistant Brewer, and Matt, our Kitchen Manager and BTC culinary program alumni, for an afternoon of Winter Beer Tasting and food pairing!
Winter is a great time to stay indoors and warm-up with some great beer and friends. This winter you’ll have the opportunity to do just that at our “Winter Beer Tasting” class…you’ll experience a selection of strong ales, barley wines, and other winter warmers along with pairings of delicious food. The class focus will be on seasonal releases fro the U.S. and Europe plus a vertical tasting of barley wine to see how aging beer changes the flavor.
In the class, you’ll get to enjoy two spiced ales, some strong ales and barley wines – including one from Schamlz Brewing that was made with fig, date and grape juices aged in rye whiskey barrels. There’ll even be a two year vertical tasting of Big Foot Barley Wine! Along with all this delicious beer, Matt will be cooking up some focused food pairings to perfectly accompany these big winter beers. Expect lots of seasonal dishes and warm, comforting foods. Perfect for all this chilly, snowy weather we’ve been having!
There are still six seats left in this Winter Beer Tasting class, so call Bellingham Technical College or register online and reserve YOUR spot for this Saturday! Cheers. Oh, and if you’re STILL not convinced, check out this blog about the beer pairing class Anthony and Matt did last April.
