Update: A previous version of this story left out an event in South Florida.
Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garrett Oliver will make stops at events in Florida this month: two centered on beer and food, and the other on beer.
On Tuesday, October 25, Oliver will lead a class at the Tampa Publix Apron’s Cooking School, 7835 Gunn Highway. The next evening, he’ll hold a beer class at the World of Beer UCF in Orlando from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
On Sunday, October 30, Oliver will present a Brooklyn Brewery Beer Dinner at The Local – Craft Food & Drink in Coral Gables from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Oliver has made his mark in the craft beer world since becoming the head brewer and a partner at Brooklyn Brewery in 1994. Besides the beer he creates, he’s penned several books, including “The Brewmaster’s Table: Discovering the Pleasures of Real Beer with Real Food,” and most recently served as editor of the “The Oxford Companion to Beer.”
He’s well-known for his dapper appearance as well, and recently caused a stir in the craft beer world with his comments on Craft Business Daily about the rather, er, casual dress code adopted by most in the brewing industry.
Seating is limited at the events in Florida.
Will you be attending any of these? We’d love to have you share any photos if you do.
