Black Star Co-op Beer Appreciation Class

Perhaps this is the class Bobnoxious thinks I need:

Dear Black Star Co-op Community,

Have you ever wondered what makes a Stout so stout, or an IPA so aromatic? Why is a hefeweizen cloudy or what's so Extra Special about an ESB? Why do all Sierra Nevada ales have the same aftertaste? This is your chance to find out.

As part of our current membership drive, we are holding a special new member sign-up day with a complimentary tasting and tidbits of knowledge thrown in from our own head brewer, Jeff Young. If you're an Invested member bring a friend who wants to join but needs that extra push. If you're a Joining member, bring an interested friend and it will also be a good time to contribute toward your full investment. If you've been interested in joining this is the time to do it.

Two tastings will be held on Nov. 10 in NW Austin (183 & Anderson Mill area): one from 3:00 to 5:00 and another from 6:30 to 8:30. Space is limited to 12 people at each tasting and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Definite commitments will be given priority over "maybes", so if you want to be part of this you need to act fast. E-mail if you'd like to come, and let me know the number of members and soon-to-be members attending.

Yours in Co-operation,
Steve Randall
