Hermosillo Brown Bag Night - "IPA’s & Double IPA’s"

What: Social Gathering

When: Monday - September 16, 2013 @ 06:30PM to Monday - September 16, 2013 @ 09:30PM

Where: The Hermosillo, Los Angeles, California
On Monday, September 16th, Hermosillo Club is organizing a loosely structured double-blind tasting of beers within a set theme-- this time, "IPA’s and Double IPA’s". The idea behind this concept is that it is an open-invitation bottle-share where all of the beers are covered in a brown bag and served in a random order, so that none of the participants have any knowledge of the beers we are drinking. It’s a fun, unpretentious way to circumvent any preconceptions you may have, and to challenge and educate your palate about the flavors and aromas you experience.

Starting at 6:30PM, we will do the "Brown Bag" tasting of various beers in small pours, and you can evaluate, rate, savor, and compare the beers to one another as part of the tasting. Price of admission? Any IPA or Double IPA of your choice. It should be very easy to find some good, fresh ones available to us in Southern California, so this should be an interesting opportunity to see which of our old favorites truly stand up as the best. If you’re bringing a 22 oz. or 750 mL bottle, one should be enough. If it’s a 12-ounce bottle or can, please bring two (if possible-- if you only have one, just bring the one).

These events are open to any and all interested participants, and will be conducted on a monthly basis at The Hermosillo, on the third Monday of every month.
