Beer enthusiasts convene with brewers and barkeeps at Village Pourhouse to celebrate their favorite hoppy beverages during special pub events. Revelers fill dry tankards with craft brews and discuss the sociopolitical possibilities of a perfect society during Winter Beertopia, a 2.5-hour tasting event showcasing a selection of more than 30 seasonal and specialty beers. Beer sommeliers and brand representatives stroll through the pub to answer questions as attendees sip ales, porters, and lagers—paired with hot small plates—purchased through event vouchers (not included with today’s Groupon).
VIP ticketholders for the Brewery of the Month tasting can broaden their brew knowledge and saturate their palates with five spotlighted beers. The pub’s beer sommelier expounds on the nectars during a beer-basics session. Attendees then put the month’s selected thirst quenchers to the test, examining for body, flavor, complexity, and showmanship of bubbles. The tasting ends on a high note with a full bottle or pint of choice.
