We are so excited to welcome beer writer and Certified-Cicerone Lucy Burningham to our taphouse! She will be reading excerpts from her latest book, My Beer Year, and teaching us about a few things beer-related (i.e. hops, how to taste/experience beer, sensory testing!) that she learned while studying to become cicerone certified!
Lucy will read from her book at 6:30 and 7 pm, have her book available for sale, and will be answering questions and signing books following her readings!
Join us for an evening of craft-beer education, sharing beer together, and meeting local beer-author Lucy Burningham!
About My Beer Year & Lucy Burningham
My Beer Year
Adventures with Hop Farmers, Craft Brewers, Chefs, Beer Sommeliers, and Fanatical Drinkers as a Beer Master in Training
As a journalist spurred by curiosity and thirst, Lucy Burningham made it her career to write about craft beer, traveling to hop farms, attending rare beer tasting parties, and visiting as many taprooms, breweries, and festivals as possible. With this as her introduction, Lucy decided to take her relationship with beer to the next level: to become a certified beer expert. As she studies and sips her way to becoming a Certified Cicerone, she meets an eclectic cast of characters, including brewers, hop farmers, beer sommeliers, pub owners, and fanatical beer drinkers. Her journey into the world of beer is by turns educational, social, and personal—just as enjoying a good beer should be.
