Blind Beer Tastings

This event is designed to hone our knowledge of beer styles. By tasting beers blind (without knowing the brand or style), it forces us to rely on our senses and knowledge of style attributes to identify the beer. We will cover major style categories and even throw some curveballs in. We will learn what those style attributes are and how we can identify them through appearance, aroma and flavor.  Registration is limited to 28 per session! Sessions will focus on different beer styles or beers from specific countries, areas or regions:  April 5: Malt is the Star April 12: Deccoction Brewed April 19: Interesting Ingredients April 26: "H" is for Hops May 3: Classic Styles May 10: Beers Aged in Wood May 17: Lager Love May 24: The Addition of Wild Yeast (or other Bacteria) May 31: Beers With Wheat June 14: Built For Summer June 28: Beers From Belgium July 12: German-Descended Beers July 19: Beers Below 5% abv July 26: Hop-Forward Beers August 2: Late Summer Beers     *CBC's Society of Master Beercierge is located on the lower level, of 85 Leonard Street, next to Foodie's Market.

Beer Training Sessions

Want to establish a better base for Beer Styles and overall, increase your #BeerIQ? You should consider joining our Monday Night Training Sessions, where we'll work hard on overall beer ingredients, flavor, aroma, key descriptions and how to articulate them to a group of your peers. We'll write both short & long descriptions for unknown beers, identify, compare & contrast beer styles that are similar and correctly identify a up to six unknown, but classic beer styles. We'll spike one beer each week, talk about the aroma & flavor characteristics, what causes it, how to avoid it and what styles it might be appropriate in.     *CBC's Society of Master Beercierge is located on the lower level, of 85 Leonard Street, next to Foodie's Market.

About Belmont, MA
Belmont Massachusetts is a quiet, affluent, residential community located on the western suburban corridor of Boston on the divides between the Charles and Mystic Rivers. Until the early 19th century, Belmont was largely an agricultural town.

Belmont was then that the turnpike and railroad linked the area to Boston which stimulated the creation of several large estates. A Belmont farmer was the first to import and breed Holstein Cows and an estate in Belmont sparked the first use of hothouses to grow fruit and vegetables. The gardens under glass were so successful that they produced enough fruit to make the town first in the country in the value of fruit products and second in the country for vegetables.

Belmont residents are proud of their quiet, well-mannered and small 4.6 square mile community and are very civic minded.
