Seminar on wood- and barrel-aged beer

About this Event

Reuben's Brews presents a fun and educational night in which we pull back the curtain on the wood- and barrel-aging process in beer. As we taste a variety of barrel and foudre-aged beers, our own expert brewers at Reuben's Brews, James McDermet and Thor Stoddard, will guide you through how the wood and beer interplay to create something in your glass that is greater than the sum of its parts. Become a part of the magic as you try your hand at blending your own creation from a combination of barrels. Your tastebuds will be piqued at this very hands-on seminar. 

  • 6:15pm - Doors open
  • 6:40pm - Brewery Tour A (for the early birds)
  • 7:00pm - Seminar begins
  • 9:00pm - Seminar ends
  • 9:05pm - Brewery Tour B (for the night owls)
  • 9:30pm - Doors close

Some very special beers will be coming out of the cellar for you to sample throughout the evening. Additionally, you'll have an opportunity to purchase some vintage barrel-aged bottles to take home with you to continue your education with friends and family! With a deeper understanding of how your beer is crafted, our hope is that you will enjoy it more fully. We hope you can join us!

A sightglass is literal window into the beer as it's being crafted. Sightglass Seminars is a series of workshops at Reuben's Brews that offers a metaphorical window into your beer through hands-on education to help you learn to enjoy your beer to the fullest.

This workshop is facilitated by Grace Robbings, Co-Founder of Reuben's Brews. Prior to co-founding and running one of the fastest growing craft breweries in the state, Grace served as a teacher for 15 years - so she believes in the power of education, including the community building power of beer education.

Details: One ticket provides access to the seminar as well as five tasters and one 12oz pour of beer. Must be 21+ to purchase. Tickets may be refunded up to 7 days prior to the event, in which case they will be offered to the next in line on the waitlist. Sorry, no refunds within 7 days of the event. Doors open at 6:15pm on the day of the event. Please email grace@reubensbrews.com with any questions. 

Pro tip: We recommend you eat dinner prior to coming as we will be sampling beers and no food is available on site.

Pro tip: We will be offering a primer on the brewing process during a brief brewery tour. If you are less familiar with the brewing process and would like more information about the brewing process prior to the seminar, please try to attend the earlier Brewery Tour A at 6:40pm. If you are very familiar with the brewing process, don't feel that you need to participate in either tour!
