    I've seen it at a few but it's more rare. If you come across any of the variants buy as much as you can

    Only a couple times a month for work. I pass the brewery off of 96, just never feel like stopping.

    I need some help. My girlfriend got a job a local brewery (1-2 shifts per week) for some extra cash. She is really getting a kick out of learning about beer and whatnot. For Christmas she is asking about "beer classes" but there doesn't seem to be anything like that in our area (Birmingham, AL) other than little 30 minute brewery tours. There is no interest in home brew, just more learning how to taste and characteristics of different beers.

    Has anyone done a cool class at a brewery in the southeast? Are there some cool books you know of I could get her?

    What is frustrating is that I don't even get free beer! They have good food and I get half off of that which is nice.

    I'm sure they exist but I don't think you need classes to pretend you can get hints of pencil shavings in your beer.

    There’s an online cicerone exam and study material at https://www.cicerone.org/products/b...MIho2GoPPb3gIVI__jBx0CpwcIEAAYASAAEgIoe_D_BwE

    Not sure how into it she wants to get there’s a few levels to it but it’s like being a sommelier for beer

    This plus a handful of books were my primary study sources when taking the certified exam. The beer server level in the cicerone program is a joke, the real test was fun though.

    Corky Bucek what recommendations do you have for downtown LA breweries? Is Imperial Western any good? Food menu looks worth a visit.

    Never been. Mikkeller and Modern Times have DTLA locations. I’ve only been to Mikkeller and it’s really solid. Can’t go wrong with any MT locations. Arts District Brewing can be fun, they have a bunch of games and decent beers. Mumford makes good stuff, but haven’t been to the brewery. Have heard it’s in a rough part slightly past DTLA.

    Some former employee posted in a beer advocate thread about them cutting employee wages for retail and packaging staff sometimes down to $5 an hour.

    Also that their tequila sunrise slushy was not a tequila barrel aged wild it was a shit batch of a beer that had tequila directly poured into it.

    Who knows if it’s true but it’s enough that JC has posted on Facebook that he needs time to think before he officially responds
