The West Coast is home to some of the best craft beer breweries in the world. Quality breweries are located throughout California, Oregon and Washingto with new ones emerging on a consistent basis. Keeping up with all this amazing talent can be a challenge.
A fun way to get involved in the rising West Coast craft beer scene is participating in a BeerNerdz tasting challenge. Guests are given a scorecard with tasting notes, alcohol percentage, brewery and beer names. The goal is to match the scorecard description to each beer being tasted. Guests compete against one another in a friendly environment to see who can name the most beers correctly. Prizes are awarded to the top 3 contestants.
The blind tasting allows the beer novice to taste and experiment with a variety of styles West Coast breweries are producing. Exposure to multiple breweries and styles is a great way to experience first hand why the West Coast is a leader in the emerging craft beer scene. It’s also a great way to discover a favorite among a variety of beers, all in a fun, non-intimidating, social setting.
The seasoned beer connoisseur can test his or her skills in a unique format. The blind tasting can help develop a deeper appreciation for the intricacies found in a brewery’s interpretation of a certain style. The experienced beer drinker can focus on the subtle flavors, nuances and characteristics each style and brewery has to offer while among other beer enthusiasts.
