Craft Beer Tasting in Downtown MB

Oct 15, 2014 01:44PM ● By DigMB Staff

Beer tastes better in beer-specific glassware.

Beer enthusiasts will want to join the fun on Saturday, October 25 when Old Venice - Greek & Italian Cuisine and Tabula Rasa Essentials bring on four handcrafted brews in four different beer-specific glasses.

In fact, if you didn't know beer could have beer-specific glasses, now is your chance to discover the world of Spiegelau-Riedel glassware, sold at Tabula Rasa Essentials.

The beer tasting includes the hand-picked selections of Julie Hantzarides, owner of Old Venice, which specializes in Greek and Italian cuisine in their Mediterranean taverna.

Mythos Lager, Weinstephaner Hefeweizen, Orval Authentic Trappist Ale, and Trestles Left Coast IPA each will be served in its own beer-specific glass, and tasters will learn about the difference a varietal-specific glass makes, according to Maureen McBride, Tabula Rasa owner.

Pizza will follow the tasting of lager, hefeweizen, IPA and Belgian beers. The event runs from 3-4:30 p.m. The $75 fee includes beer tasting, pizza and four Spiegelau-Riedel beer-specific glasses to take home.

Call Tabula Rasa Essentials at (310) 318-3385 to book your spot.
