Philadelphia was recently honored as the home of the first lager brewed in America. John Wagner, a Bavarian immigrant, secretly brought lager yeast to Philadelphia in 1840, brewing America's first lager in the back of a house on St. John's street in Old City. What makes lager different from ale - and as anthropologist Gregory Bateson once asked, "What difference does the difference make?" Internationally renowned beer expert Michael Jackson will select ten lagers and ales to answer this and other questions in this, the 12th annual tutored event. The tutored sessions will be followed by an open tasting of over 120 outstanding microbrews from around the world, complemented by foods from Museum Catering Company.Guests must be at least 21 years of age to attend.
