City Works to Host ‘Beer Brewing School’ in Tysons

For the first time, City Works will soon host “Brew U Beer School,” a free four-week event teaching guests about different types of beer.

The “school” will have four sessions, each from 6-7 p.m. on Mondays, from Feb. 10 until March 2 at the restaurant (1640 Capital One Drive North), according to a press release.

Each session will be led by beer industry experts and breweries. The event is for “anybody and everybody who wants to learn about beer,” according to spokesperson Colleen Rooney.

“We really want to engage the local community and get them more interested in beer,” Rooney said.

While people can choose whether or not to attend all of the sessions, the more workshops attended will increase people’s chances of winning a raffle for either a $100 City Works gift card or tickets to the Washington Nationals Home Opener and World Series Ring Ceremony.

Here are the topics attendees can expect to learn about at each of the sessions:

  • Feb. 10 with Allagash Brewery: the history of beer and how to pour and serve beer correctly
  • Feb. 17 with Vasen Brewing: different styles of beer, how to pair beer with food and how to cook with beer
  • Feb. 24 with DC Brau: how beer is made with different brewing processes and ingredients
  • March 2 with Old Ox and Premium Distributing: beer distribution and draft systems

The sessions are free “to make it accessible to the wider community,” Rooney said. People interested in “Brew U Beer School” can register online.
