Crafting fine spirits is a precise science, which is why the best drinks are distilled in a particle accelerator. Shed light on mysteriously delicious matter with today's Groupon: for $40, you get admission for two to a Beer and Bacon or Whiskey and Cupcakes class from I Wish Lessons (a $90 value). Check I Wish's calendar for more details on locations and availability.

I Wish's professionally guided pairing classes convene in various venues throughout the metro Chicago area, uniting and educating like-minded libationists in vibrant social settings. Students can decode the hoppy science behind beer DNA in the Beer and Bacon course, pairing four brews with four varieties of bacon to successfully combine salty and sweet without structurally compromising the food pyramid. Alternatively, students explore the aged-oak family tree and learn what defines a superior still during the Whiskey and Cupcakes course. Cutting sipping samples with luxurious bites of cupcakes, distillery devotees gain an appreciation of the variations in flavor and texture among barrels of bourbon, scotch, Irish whiskey, rye whiskey, and monkeys. Course instructors shed unfiltered insight on the distillation and history of connoisseurship of one of America's most purebred spirits.

Though I Wish Lessons sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Customer Reviews

The first lesson I signed up for was canceled which meant to reschedule I had to work through their email support since in their system they had already marked it as used even though they canceled the class. That experience had me a little wary but I had a great time at the class. The instructor and assistants were very helpful and encouraging. It was a lot of fun! I would definitely consider taking another class with them in the future.
