This is a good event. I attended last year and Marnie Old puts on a good show. She co-wrote "He said beer she said wine" with Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head. Last year, Marnie compared several German beers with American ones of the same style. This year, she will be pairing German Beer with food.
If anyone is interested in volunteering to pour beer and help out, let me know. My wife works in the office at the German Society and may be able to get a few ALEiens on the volunteer list.
Here is the info on the event:
Dear Members and Friends,
For those of you who attended our Beer Tasting during last year’s Philly Beer Week, you know it was an exciting event that filled the Auditorium. This year, we are planning a repeat performance!
The Philly Beer Week Tasting with Marnie Old is entitled “Pairing German Beer with Food+ – Inside the Sensory Science”, and it will be held on Saturday, March 7th at 3:00pm.
Discover how and why the world's most popular alcoholic beverage is a better food partner than other drinks like wine and spirits. Join sommelier and author, Marnie Old, for a lively and engaging guided beer tasting that explores the scrumptious possibilities of pairing German beer styles with food.
Marnie's signature approach emphasizes sensory science, making her presentations memorable and accessible, regardless of your level of beverage knowledge.
You'll discover through experience, how the tastes, smells, and tactile sensations of beer and food interact in surprising, but predictable ways.
Come learn why beer pairs so beautifully with so many popular foods and sauces - with everything from hot chilis to chocolate. You'll leave feeling more confident than ever in choosing which beer styles to partner with which foods at home or dining out.
We'll sample a smaller number of beers, but in larger quantity - tasting back and forth with common food components - simple stuff like salt, honey, lemons, hot sauce, cheese, butter, etc. – to illustrate how beer handles specific food characteristics.
Tickets are $25 for members and $35 for non-members, and reservations are strongly recommended. You can order your tickets by calling our office (215-627-2332), or by visiting us on the web at http://german-society-of-pennsylvania.ticketleap.com/.
We look forward to seeing you here,
+P..S. PLEASE NOTE - While this seminar illustrates food pairing principles, it is not intended to replace a meal.
