Virtual Hoppy Hour - May 2020 2

Beer brings people together! Our virtual tastings are perfect for corporate groups, virtual conventions, birthdays, friends, and families.

What to Expect

Interested in a private tasting class? We will do our best to accommodate! Please fill out the form with you preferred date(s) and time(s). Please note:

  • We require a 6 person minimum for our tastings. You may book a tasting class with less people, but the fee remains the same. There is no maximum.
  • Our typical class length is 1.5 hours. We can customize if you prefer.
  • Beer is not included in the ticket price. Prior to the virtual hoppy hour, guidance on beers and styles will be provided so you can purchase within the same or similar style and follow along. Chicago-specific beers are provided where applicable, but geography is not important, and people have participated from across the world.
  • Through a third-party beer store, we can help arrange the purchase of mixed-4 packs beer store with at least 14 days advanced notice.
  • Regarding class size, 20 people or less is best for a more collaborative class, between 20-40 participants still works well, and we can accommodate virtual tastings for larger groups of 50, 100, or even more participants with a few easy tweaks. Please contact us through the form on the right or email for more information.
  • A Zoom link and other relevant details will be provided for your group prior to your class.

Please reach out to us if you have any other questions.

Thank you!


Virtual Hoppy Hour Beer Tasting Class

Join us on our highly-rated, live interactive virtual beer tasting class where you will learn about beer and history in a safe, fun way!

We got the beers ahead of time and were able to taste each one along with him, even though we weren't physically together. My friends and I all had a blast!...It was so much fun learning about and focusing on Chicago beers and history.
