Join us for a curated beer tasting and meet the brewers and hops farmers behind your favorite pints.

From East Coast to West Coast, hops transform the bitterness, flavor and aroma of beer. The spiciness of certain buds make a saison. Earthy, aromatic hops flavor pilsnsers and Bohemian style lagers. And of course, hops are what make the IPA style the icon of American craft beer. 

Learn how to taste and appreciate the hops that give breweries like Russian River, Allagash and Victory their distinct styles guided by Jimmy Carbone, owner of Jimmy’s 43 and host of the internet radio show, "Beer Sessions Radio."
