Ottawa Beer Tastings Introductory Learn From Home
Ottawa Beer Tastings is an approachable and interactive way to increase your knowledge of beer with a guided tasting in your own home. Just like your first year in residence, you have the option to learn in your sweatpants (er, unless you’re attending one of their corporate presentations).
Matt Petitpas and Sasha Dunfield of Ottawa Beer Events work with hosts to create a customized event that can focus on specific beer styles or act as an introduction to beer. “Through both our in-home and corporate beer tastings, we try to provide a relaxed and informative session that allows participants to discover new craft beers while showcasing their unique properties,” explains Dunfield. “Our aim is to educate and to open minds to try something other than the yellow fizzy beverage that your grandfather used to drink.”
Typically, each attendee is provided with six five-ounce servings of beer, which are sampled one at a time while Petitpas and Dunfield cover such topics as the brewing process, beer serving tips, appropriate glassware, and style characteristics. Brewing history and the 613 beer scene
