Singlecut Beersmith, located at 19-33 37th Street, is about to offer a 10-week course specializing in craft beer, where attendees will learn the ins and outs of tasting and making beer.
Attendees can pick either Tuesday or Wednesday nights (7 pm) to undertake the ten “Zymurgy Sessions” — named after the study of fermentation.
“Everything you ever want to know about beer we will be going over,” said Amanda Mayer who will be an instructor. “We are going over brewing ingredients, recipe formulation…brewing a beer… draft systems [and] beer styles.”
Mayer said attendees will get to taste 10 beers per session and review the style of each beer.
The course is for beer lovers and/or budding experts.
The course will prepare those who plan to receive their Cicerone certification, a designation denoting that someone is a craft beer expert.
According to Mayer, the cicerone exam is four hours long and extremely extensive.
Singlecut is charging $75 for each individual class or $500 for all ten.
There will also be a classes offered called Pint of Reference, which is a ladies only course on Thursday nights beginning January 30, which will cost $20 per class.
