Though the “noble experiment” of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that could shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today’s Groupon to The Bottle Shop. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get a 90-minute beer class for two, plus one empty growler (a $100 value).
- For $75, you get a 90-minute beer class for four, plus two empty growlers (a $200 value).<p>
This Groupon is valid for the following classes, which take place on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.: * February: Beer 101 * March: Beer styles and Glassware * April: Home Brewing * May: Belgian Beer * June: Craft Beers 101 * July: Beer and Food Parings</p>
At The Bottle Shop’s beer college, up to 10 students per class listen and learn from educated hops enthusiasts as they sit at long, wooden tables, surrounded by shelves stuffed with inspiring bottles. Libation newbies expand their horizons at a Beer 101 class, which covers beer’s storied history and introduces concepts such as pairing, Belgian beers, and manicuring sudsy mustaches. The more focused Belgian Beer class reveals the secrets of the floral brews, covering doubles and triples, and artisan American beers star in the Craft Beers 101 session. Hopeful brew scientists leap into a Home Brewing class, mixing up potions and love serums under the tutelage of the brewmaster at Lakewood Brewing Company. Though tastings are not included with this Groupon, students can participate in tasting portions of each class for an extra $5.
The Bottle Shop
Most days, The Bottle Shop is a bar founded by the owners of World Beer Company, with a selection of more than 500 beers and a reflective metallic-topped table at which to drink. On Tuesday each week, however, the bar transforms into an institute of higher learning: Beer College. Between its exposed brick walls, students learn about eclectic topics, from home-brewing to pairing beer with food—rather than drinking beer and then eating the empty bottle. The walls themselves offer inspiration, with their shelves stocked with diverse beers such as Denver Pale Ale and Duvel.
