Raise a Glass, Quarantine-Style

Thursday, August 27, 2020

Join us for a virtual beer-tasting, plus fun, trivia and friendly conversation.

Stuck mostly at home, professional librarian (and amateur beer enthusiast) Nick Szegda has been pining for the camaraderie and conversation of his local watering hole. Join Nick for another early evening of beer tasting, trivia and fun. 

“All beer is local” said former Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill (FAKE NEWS!). What’s not fake is the variety of quality beers available at local taprooms.

In this installment of “Raise a Glass, Quarantine Style (Episode III – A New Hop)” we will be sampling beer available from three local tap rooms:
  • Freewheel Brewing Company in Redwood City
  • Ghostwood Beer Company in Redwood City 
  • Fieldwork Brewing Company Taproom in San Mateo
Some of these brewers change their offerings or have limited quantities on hand. Nick will be sampling from what he finds available the week before our event, so your results may vary. Don’t panic – it’s just beer.

Taste along with one, some or all (or none!). Nick will try to spread out the choices amongst different beer styles, and we’ll try to update our calendar listing with the selections he’s made. Pick your own favorites and share out with the group. Will it be a harmonious beer rainbow, or a dissonant clash of palate palaver? Tune in to find out!

Taste along with us, or just join us for some fun and conversation.
