Apologies for missing the first event last weekend but for those of you wanting to learn more about beer traditions and food & beer pairings, look no further than the beer education classes at the Boothby Center with Rich Higgins.
In addition to being the Brewmaster of Social Kitchen & Brewery, organizing the San Francisco Brewer’s Guild, and living just a few short blocks from the Elizabeth Street Brewery, Rich Higgins is also a certified Master Cicerone.
He is bringing his knowledge and expertise to the good people of San Francisco starting this month and running through February 13, 2012. You’ve already missed the UK Beer Tradition course but feel free to come over to the ESB for a private session on that in the near future. In the meantime, check out all the other classes and dates below:
World Beer Traditions (http://beertraditions.eventbrite.com)

You can use promotion code “weissbier” to receive a $10 discount for each ticket purchased. Also, discounted 4-class packages are available for a limited time. Tickets cost $55-$65 and are a fundraiser for the non-profit Barbary Coast Conservancy for the American Cocktail.
Classes are on Sundays from 5-7 PM (except the Valentine’s class is on a Monday). I definitely plan on attending a few of these over the next couple of months so maybe I’ll see you there.
