Hop College: Food & Beer

We hope you’re hungry for knowledge and thirsty for beer, because class is back in session at Hop College: Pairing Food & Beer! Learn all about complementing your favorite dishes with the right beer style the Great Lakes way. In Pairing Food & Beer, Cicerone-certified GLBC staff will show you what makes a great beer and food pairing during a fun (and flavorful!) lesson. We added a little twist to this class where we will have two Chefs go head to head with each pairing principle to try and get the students vote!

Joining us will be chef Dan Racco and Drew Surnak leading the discussion on why they picked the dish for each beer.There won’t be any textbooks, but we will have plenty of beer samples and small bites to help enhance your learning. Students who complete Food & Beer will leave with a special Hop College branded tulip glass and official beer nerd bragging rights.

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