Meet the experts that make darn sure your beer tastes the way it is supposed to (the best job in the world, right?) while they take you through the evaluation process like the pros do.

In addition to deconstructing and analyzing four IPAs, we we’ll be analyzing NBB’s “Tart Lychee” and Tonya’s newest raspberry sour “Crush.” Her first released sour “Ching Ching” landed her the gold at World Beer ‘12 and the bronze at GABF ‘11.
