Seven Saints Beer Class

Thursdays, at 9:30 p.m. Seven Saints is now holding Beer Class.

If you are interested in beer, which you must be, otherwise why the hell are you here? then you may want to check out this ongoing event.

The class is taught by Eric, who is quite knowledgeable on beer. The class covers history of beer, breweries, styles, and stories.

Previous recent weeks have been: British beers, stouts, and hops.

The class initially was to give the employees of the bar a background of their beer (and other alcohol) selection. It's been going for a while, and is now open to the public. The cost is $10, but you'll sample several beers during that time.

It last over an hour, so it's not an early night for a Thursday. After class, we have some more "advanced" beers with the theme. It's a good time.

This Thursday's class is on Dogfish Head beers. If you are familiar with the beer, there might be some there that you haven't had (rumor has it there will be 120).

It seems the Illini have been playing a lot of Thursday night 8 p.m. games. If you are looking for a place to watch the game, Seven Saints has the game on, and beer class starts right after the game.
