CARLISLE’S newest bar - BrewDog - will be offering free versions of its beer schools to give anyone the chance to sample its headliner beers, learn the fundamentals of tasting beer, and join the craft beer revolution.

The new programme will be offering the sessions free of charge, and is the latest initiative supporting BrewDog’s ambition to build a business evangelical about great craft beer.

The free Bar Stool beer schools will be hosted by BrewDog’s Cicerone-trained staff and will give attendees an introduction to different beer styles including background and history, as well as a guided exploration through the various aspects of beer tasting such as aroma, flavour and colour.

During the 30-minute sessions, attendees will receive a flight of four tasters of the Scottish brewer’s headliner beers, featuring modern twists on craft beer classics, along with tasting cards to populate with their new-found knowledge.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “We exist to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are. I can’t wait to welcome more people into the truly inspiring world of craft beer.”

Tickets for these in-depth sessions cost £20 per person.
