Hop College: Lagers Style Exploration Class

The taps are on, the beer is pouring, and class is in session! Head down to Ohio City and expand your beer knowledge at Hop College: Style Exploration. This month’s focus? Lagers! Join Certified Cicerone®️ Great Lakes Brewing Co. staff as we crack open the history and sensory characteristics of our smoothest concoctions, and taste the beers that helped paved the way for craft brewing in the Buckeye State!

Students who enroll in Hop College: Style Exploration will head to the “classroom” where Certified Cicerone®️ Great Lakes Brewing Co. staff will help you tap into a deeper understanding of our seasonal and year round lagers through a guided tasting, complete with sensory analysis, a rundown of the history of the style, the stories behind GLBC's versions, and more during this crash course on all things crispy! There won’t be any textbooks, but we will have plenty of beer to help enhance your learning. We will be tasting:


73 Kolsch

Dortmunder Gold Lager

Eliot Ness Amber Lager

Each Class Admission ticket will include one 7 oz. pour of each beer, so have those taste buds ready! Students who enroll will receive a special Hop College pokal glass, pictured below. Add-on tickets are also available for an exclusive Hop College notebook and GLBC pen, pictured below the pokal glass.

Graduate at the bottom of your glass at Hop College, where our taproom is your classroom!
