HOP College Private Classes

Students who enroll in Virtual Hop College: Beer 101 will head to the virtual “classroom” where GLBC Beer Educators crack open the story of beer – where it came from, how it’s made, and the best way to taste it.

For this class, we’ll be learning about (and tasting) the following 5 beers:

No text books required, but feel free to pick up a few of these beers that you’re interested in for class! (Additionally, we can offer tickets that include these study beers, and a special Hop College exclusive glass! These beers can also be altered to fit the needs of your group if necessary.)

Class will be held via Zoom, and will be a total of 60 minutes. Students will be responsible for downloading the Zoom app ahead of time.

Pricing for Virtual Hop College varies depending on the group size, as well as the beers selected. Classes can be offered with or without beer. Keep in mind, for any tickets including beer, study beers must be picked up in our Gift Shop located in Ohio City. State of Ohio Law, unfortunately, prohibits us from shipping beer.
