Anyone who has ever met Brian Helton can tell you that he is a huge advocate for education in the craft beer world. He has done many types of classes including food/beer pairings as well as sensory classes to help people know more about the art of tasting beer. With this said it totally makes sense that his brewery puts on a Beer School. Where was this the day I dropped out of college!?!?! I would have a Doctoral degree by now! Beer School is basically a handful of breweries getting together to put on mini courses to help educate people in different areas of craft beer. Plus you get some sweet swag, get to taste awesome beers and meet some of the best people in the world. In case you haven't heard, craft beer people are the most awesome people in the world.
We were lucky enough to be invited to cover this event and there was no way we were going to turn that down. It was great talking with everyone. The guest list ranged from people within the Arizona craft beer industry to home brewers looking to improve their craft to straight up beer enthusiasts.
