A Hoppy Place have been invited to run a private tutored beer tasting event for Windsor Rugby Club:

How to judge Beer like a beer judge and the ingredients in beer. Tutored Drinkalong with A Hoppy Place

This is a 2 hour online event hosted via A Hoppy Place’s Professional Zoom account and run by A Hoppy Place Co Owner Dave Hayward, accredited Beer Sommelier.

Sat 28th Nov 2020: 13:00 start!

Everyone will be tasting either 5 or 6 beers with an ABV between 3 and 12%, which all showcase in some way the affect of hops, malt or yeast in our favourite drink. There 6th beer is an optional “big finish”. This beer will be big and bold and stupid, very hopforward, and be what some might call a “finisher”. This final beer will be high ABV, and full of flavour, and a lot of fun! 

As well as learning about beer, beer ingredients and how to drink beer – there will be a Q+A and of course, the chance to judge beer yourself, or just drink it. but these are interactive events and discussion is very much encouraged.



There are two variants on site to choose from, the 5 and 6 beer selection. 45 tickets in total.  If you wish to buy multiple tickets, simply add the desired quantity to your basket.
