Hello brew crew,
I don’t know about you, but we are catching a little cabin fever and are running out of new things to discuss during online meetups. To give you a unique option that you can enjoy from the comfort of your homes, we created a Virtual Hoppy Hour Beer Tasting Class that combines beer basics with Chicago history that makes our beer tours so fun! We also have added interactive elements like a quiz and visual aids to make it interesting online.

Our class is intended for and perfect for groups, including birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, work happy hours, or just meetups with friends. Using simple technology, it is easy to link up with others around the world.
