Bob Testimonial

"You spend four weeks drinking a different beer each week with a whole group of people who are all analyzing the tastes and smells that they are getting from that beer along with a beer judge.

And that is the best way to do it."

Tim Heffernan Testimonial

And that's why I took the course and I was hoping to improve my palette. And that's exactly what the course did.

It improved my palette, but more importantly, I think longterm is that it gave me a process for improving, continuing to improve my palette. And that's, that was the real value for me.
