Bend’s Crux Fermentation Project is launching a new tasting and education series, dubbing it “BEER’ducation,” designed to highlight their beers and learn about them along the way. From their press release:
Join us in exploring the wonderful nuances and breadth of craft beer every Monday evening in our Tasting Room. Our BEER’DUCATION SERIES of beer menu specials are designed to stimulate greater appreciation and understanding of craft beer through the self-guided experience of comparing and contrasting variations in styles and brewing processes. Each Monday evening, a different Crux beer will be highlighted via a special beer menu offering that includes a tasting guide to help you make the most of your experience.
The series starts this Monday, January 28, and features Cast Out IPA vs. Experimental Ella IPA—the same base beer brewed with different Australian hops. Future Mondays they have lined up are:
- January 25: [Banished] Doublecross vs. “Regular” Doublecross — exploring barrel aging;
- February 1: Snow Cave + Food Pairing — with a special savory and sweet dish to pair;
- February 8: Pre-Prohibition Lager vs. Crux Pilz.
Keep an eye on Crux’s Facebook events page for an up-to-date schedule of these BEER’ducation events (plus I’ll have them in my Oregon Beer News posts).
