Every other Wednesday, starting August 23, 2017, we will gather at 5:30pm in the taproom and talk about beer (and drink some too!). We will use the Cicerone Certified Beer Server syllabus as a guide, but we will also venture into other topics not covered by the exam, like current and historic events. We want the ol' Republic Taproom to be the standard that other breweries, taprooms, and bars look to. We need to be as knowledgable as possible about not only our beers, but all else that is happening in the craft beer world. We want our customers to come in, enjoy beer, and walk out with a little bit more knowledge, even if it just understanding why they like the beers they like, or discovering a new style. We hope that we can all make this a constant event, and that it will grow to include more than just our staff, maybe a fun trivia game, maybe we'll move to another spot to try some other beers. Anything that can help us grow and mature as beer servers and enthusiasts. Come with questions, come with knowledge, and come with some snacks too!
