I Don’t Like Beer- A Tasting 
For many, an introduction to beer came through a pale lager, best served iced cold, or an import that had a faint aroma of skunk. That coupled with a general impression that beer can be “lower class” than, say, wine, has some people claiming that they don’t like beer. This presentation explores the flavors of beer, and how to properly taste it. When taking into account more than just taste, but color, aroma, mouthfeel, and a bit of history, many people are surprised when they suddenly find out that they do like beer, just not the stuff that started them in the wrong direction.
