GERMAN WINE 101 presented by ALPINE HAUS

Jacob Hammond will sample two German wines, Dr. Loosen’s Riesling Red Slate and Dr. Schmitt’s Pinot Noir, to illustrate the basics of wine tasting, pairing, varieties and even cooking tips. Just what we need to sample over 30 wines at the festival!

CRAFT BEER COCKTAILS presented by DOWNTOWN SOCIAL

Joe Collins, also from the local favorite Pour Haus, introduces a little known cocktail ingredient: beer! You’ll find it’s perfect for manacos, cheladas, shandies, snakebites, sidewalkers and more! We’re going to need more craft beer!
