From Water into Beer
Thursday, September 29, 2016 –
6:30pm to 9:00pm
Note: must be 21 or over to attend this event
In conjunction with the Curtiss Mansion and Smithsonian Institution’s Water/Ways exhibit, come learn all about the beer-making process from Cavalier Distributing’s Eric Durr and Virginia Gardens resident and craft beer afficionado Paul Bithorn. With beer being 97% water, its purity is critical to the quality and taste of beer, so come early enough to walk through the Smithsonian exhibit (open noon to 6 p.m.) and then stay to enjoy this fun-filled (and educational) evening!
Admission and parking for this event are FREE and open to the public (donations are gratefully appreciated).
Eric fell in love with the experience of trying new beers and learning about different styles while studying abroad in Spain in 2006. After traveling Europe and being exposed to some of the most highly acclaimed beers in the world, he came back to the United States with a thirst for more.
Eric started home-brewing in 2012 and eventually quit his office job to study Professional Brewing Science in Asheville, North Carolina where he graduated at the top of his class.
Eric works with Cavalier Distributing, a craft-only distributor that carries a great assortment of high quality local, regional, national and imported products, and beyond beer deals with artisanal meads, ciders and soft drinks. Eric has already made a name for himself in the craft beer industry!
