Wine and cheese is the height of elegance, we've been told. Wine and cheese=classy, right? Surely nothing goes together better than wine and cheese. Not so! Beer and cheese make a better pairing in every way, with a greater range of flavors working together to wow the senses. 

Come join us for a guided flight of three beers and cheeses selected by veteran cheese monger and Top Hops beer expert.

Event Itinerary:

  1. Once all guests have arrived, we’ll begin with a greeting and introductions led by our engaging and charming Top Hops beer educator.
  2. Class tasting notes will be handed out.
  3. We will then provide an overview of what we intend to learn in the class.
  4. Next, it’s time to get down to business and sample our scrumptious instructor-curated beers and cheeses.
  5. Cheese and beer pairings will be done one at a time, with interactions around the tasting notes.
  6. At the end we'll have time for some Q&A.
  7. Guests should save some time to linger at Top Hops post class when they can opt to sample more beers.
  8. The experience includes a 10% discount on all store purchases.

The class was awesome. I learned a ton and tried amazing beers. The size of the class was perfect. I definitely plan on taking additional courses.
