An introduction to beer styles:
Ales and Lagers
One of the most asked questions about beer is: What's the difference between a lager and an ale. Even long-time beer enthusiasts can't always answer this one.
But you could--after enjoying this private tasting event with veteran City Swiggers bartender Peter Higgins. Not only does Peter possess a vast knowledge about beer, he's been blessed with a highly developed palate and a great gift for articulate explanation. As a former chef, he's worked with some of NYC’s greatest, including David Bouley and David Chang.
At this intimate gathering, Peter will delight you with a short history of 8 to 10 different representative styles, each followed by a round of pours. While you are imbibing each taste, he will enlighten you on every key characteristic, such as appearance, aroma, and mouthfeel.
The idea is first to compare lagers and ales in terms of the progression of appearance and flavor complexity. Then, to show that even within the two major categories—lager or ale--styles can be very different as well.
By the end of the night, you will have a much deeper understanding of craft beer. You will go away feeling confident next time you find yourself ordering that Czech-style Pilsner, Vienna Lager, Baltic Porter, Pale Ale, IPA, Wit or Stout.
And you will be raving about what an enjoyable evening you just had.
