The Four Firkins Offers Beer Education
With the rapid increase in popularity and availability of craft beer particularly in the Twin Cities’ market, many consumers are excited and passionate about trying new beers.
The Four Firkins Specialty Beer Store in St. Louis Park has begun educational tasting classes that focus on understanding and appreciating craft beers to encourage learning without judgment.
For the first educational tasting on Jan. 31, space was limited to 25 students, and the tickets sold out less than 24 hours after posting the event.
Educational tastings will take place approximately once a month going forward, focusing on a variety of themes from beer styles and history, to pairings, and brewing process. The objective of the program is to provide high quality beer education in an intimate atmosphere for drinkers of any experience level.
The Four Firkins Specialty Beer Store was founded in May 2008 by Jason Alvey in St. Louis Park. The Four Firkins hosts weekly informal tastings on Friday and Saturday evenings and frequent brewery focused tastings. For information on upcoming classes, visit The Four Firkins online.
The Beltline Station on the proposed Southwest Light Rail Transit line could transform Beltline and County Road 25 into “grand urban boulevards” and create a “hip” neighborhood.
That’s after a multi-part workshop examining five key station areas on the line: Mitchell and Golden Triangle stations in Eden Prairie, Blake Station in Hopkins, Beltline Station in St. Louis Park and Penn Station in Minneapolis.
