Join New Belgium Brewing’s Sensory Specialist and Blender, Lauren Salazar, and Cellar Meister, Eric Salazar, in a unique and rare experience that is only being held in five cities across the Nation in 2015. You don’t want to miss this experience!

Arizona’s Sour Symposium will feature two different sessions, each lasting two hours. Guests will go through the art of blending beer  from grain to glass  focusing on techniques Eric and Lauren use in New Belgium’s cellar. Attendees will also get to blend their own sour beers using different samples of unblended base beers kept in individual foeders of the brewery’s cellar and document their blend ratios to see who has what it takes to be the next Master Blender.

“Beer blending is a sensory art that has been relied on for centuries to create both balance and complexity,” said Lauren. “This Sour Symposium is a great way to experience beer making in its purest form and attendees leave with a true appreciation for the wonderful world of sours!”

$50 per person, inclusive. Food/Beer/Education
