Question from Anonymous
Is wine served throughout class?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Intelligentsia "Chopping Block Blend" coffee and still water are served during every class. Wine, beer and soda are available for purchase. If you choose to bring in your own alcohol, keep in mind that a corkage fee will be charged: $15 per bottle of wine or per six-pack of beer. Also, if you buy your wine from them, they can legally package any leftover wine so you can take the bottle home. If you BYOB, the school are unable to provide that service. Hope this helps!
