Beer and art have a long history together, from Egyptian hieroglyphics to Hogarth, Picasso, Bruegel, Renoir and Manet. We invite you to taste and discuss several beer styles from local breweries as we examine the artistic imagery of beer in paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, and comics. You’ll see art from the 1600s to the present time, from museums and private collections all over the world, and even on the beer bottles themselves. Raise a glass to your favorite artist! Instructor: Kris Butler

This class will be online via Zoom. You’ll receive a beer list beforehand so that you’ll be able to taste along during class. You can also just watch and learn without tasting along. Please also check your spam folder.
If you register 12 hours or less before the class begins or after the start date, please contact zoom@ccae.org for the link.
