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.
