The Beers of the British Isles:
U.S. microbreweries can thank Great Britain for much of their inspiration, as the United Kingdom is the only country in the world that still produces substantial varieties and quantities of ales. In this entertaining course, students learn the intricacies of pale ales, stouts, porters, and many other styles of British ales.

Held at the Brickskeller Saloon, each class includes a lecture and a guided tasting of approximately six beers.

Pale Ale and IPA:
Pale ale and its variations are the everyday beers of England. India Pale Ale, or IPA, was originally brewed for export to India, and has become a popular style in the U.S. Bob Tupper is the house beer expert at the Brickskeller Saloon in Washington, and brewer, with his wife, Ellie, of Tuppers' Hop Pocket Ale, which won a gold medal at the 1997 Great American Beer Festival.
