Come celebrate the creative communities of Cincinnati and learn about our burgeoning (or re-emerging?) beer culture with Bryant Goulding, co-founder of the future Rhinegeist Brewery, and the people over at The Bird Haus, a local outside-the-box educational initiative. Goulding has turned his passion for beer into a bona fide career, selling the fizzy beverage for big brewers such as Anderson Valley and Dogfish Head across both coasts.
Luckily, he's decided to settle down in the valley, and his Rhinegeist Brewery will be opening soon in OTR — but not before he can instruct us "beerophiles" on how and why to select his fine offerings in the first place.
The Bird Haus is striving to make this city great through teaching events like this one — The Bird & The Beer — in uncommon "classrooms." This time, learn the history, characteristics and processes that go into making Belgian ales.
1 p.m. $20 early registration, otherwise it's $25 at the door. The Famous Neons Unplugged, 208 E. 12th St., Over-the-Rhine, thebirdhousecincinnati.com .
