Raise a Glass, Quarantine-Style: A Film and a Tasting

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Enjoy a short film, and then 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. 

We'll also be discussing the short film 8000 Years of Beer, which takes us back to the time of Sumerians, Egyptians, and the Medieval Benedictines, and is  available for streaming on Kanopy, free with your Menlo Park Library card.

The beers
  • Snow Weizen – Kawaba (Japan)
  • La Chouffe – Belgian blonde ale
  • Guinness extra stout – Ireland
  • HofBrau original - Germany
  • Sierra Nevada pale ale – California
All are available at the Willows Market in Menlo Park.

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

This free event received partial funding support from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
