Event: White Labs tasting at SF Beer Week

Heads up, locals: Remember last month, when I wrote about our beer-tasting experience at White Labs? Well, they're having a similar tasting in San Francisco for SF Beer Week.

The tasting is tomorrow, Saturday, February 9th, at 3 pm.

It’s Alive!!: Sipping Session with White Labs, Kara Taylor, Analytical Laboratory Specialist

February 9 3:00pm – 5:00pm
City Beer Store
1168 Folsom Street, San Francisco

San Diego's White Labs, a leader in yeast production for the worldwide brewing community, brewed a hefeweizen specifically for this educational tasting session. The same recipe was brewed four times, each time using a different yeast strain.

The featured yeasts are: WLP300 Hefeweizen Ale Yeast, WLP320 American Hefeweizen Ale Yeast, WLP380 Hefeweizen IV Ale Yeast, and WLP400 Belgian Wit Ale Yeast.

Kara will be barside to break down the characteristics of each yeast strain; explaining the harmony between science + art, and how it applies to brewing.

Pencils and papers ready to go at 3pm.
