For years Dayton has been known as a town with an abundance of wine tastings each week and now with the rise in popularity of craft beers, those of us who really enjoy our ales and lagers are starting to have lots of choices, too! Rumbleseat Wine just sent us an email telling us they’l be hosting a weekly beer tasting on Wednesday nights from 6-8pm. According to their newsletter, the event will give you a chance to learn more about beer and pairing it with food. The sessions will be lead by someone they are calling Beer Guru Charles. Now I don’t know who this Charles is and I’m not sure what the training is to become a guru, but I look forward to sharing a brew with him and finding out!
Tonight’s beers include: Goose Islands Sofie– a Belgian Style farmhouse ale, Goose Island’s Pere Jacques– a fruity malty ale, and two beers from the Intercourse Brewing Company, which was named after the rural Pennsylvania Amish community of Intercourse, ironically a dry town. Go ahead giggle here, you know you want to. You can taste Blue Ball Porter – a smokey porter with a hint of blueberry and Bareville Pilsner– an American style pilsner. You can try all four for just $6, and you’ll be able to purchase those you like to take home.
The tastings start tonight, and I’ve got a previous engagement, so will some of my beer buddies check it out and report back to us all in the comments below, if you go! You’ll find Rumbleseat at 5853 Far Hills Avenue, about a block north of Dorothy Lane Market in Kettering.
