18 Reasons: A Celebration of Grain: A Cook-Along with Fort Point Brewing Company

March 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Zoom Meeting Online PST
San Francisco, CA 94110
United States

This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

This year, things look a little different for everyone. In the Before Times, Fort Point and 18 Reasons would have hosted a full (unmasked!) house to celebrate the joys of pairing robust and uniquely delicious beer with a menu to match, as we did for the last four years. For the fifth iteration however, we are bringing the beer and food to you–the best version of “teach a man to fish” in our opinion! In this class, Head Brewer Mike Schnebeck will teach us through taste and touch about malted grains and how they affect flavor in the brewing process, while Chef Mike will guide students through a menu that showcases the grains themselves. Join us for an evening of sipping beers and eating delicious food from the comfort of your own kitchen! Head over to https://fortpointbeer.com/shop/18-reasons-cooking-class to sign up (more information below).

Interested in participating?

Students can purchase the ticket and cooking kit bundle, which includes a 4-pack of beers and all of the pantry ingredients minus perishables, directly from Fort Point* (details below). The kit will be delivered in time to cook along the night of the event. We consider one ticket per screen, so if there are multiple members of a household cooking together on the same screen, no need to purchase multiple bundles.

Step 1: Purchase the ticket and cooking kit bundle (students will need to acquire a few perishable items separately) directly from Fort Point at the following link: https://fortpointbeer.com/shop/18-reasons-cooking-class.

Step 2: Review ingredient and equipment list here (click to view) and acquire perishable items listed. Students will receive an email with class logistics and recipes 5-7 days prior to class.

Step 3: Come to class on Friday 3/19 ready to cook with, learn about, and enjoy beer!

*Registration is limited to students currently residing in California, as shipping from Fort Point is only available throughout CA. Registration will close 3 days in advance of the event to ensure that students receive their beer and ingredient box prior to class.
