Discovering the Flavors of Beer With Dave Kahle
In this seminar, we will discuss how flavor perception works and how to apply it to tasting beer. While discussing the range of flavors that can be found in beer, we will do side by side taste comparisons to give an understanding of the different ingredients and how they play a roll in creating beer styles. This tasting session will also help you to understand what your preferences are within the scope of beer styles, making it easier to buy a beer that you’ll enjoy.
Dave Kahle is a Master Cicerone, one of just four people to have earned the title. He has earned certificates from the Siebel Institute/World Brewing Academy, in Brewing Technology, Sensory Panel Management, and Brewing Microbiology, as well as having an Advanced Draft Tech certificate from the Micro Matic Draft Institute.
Since high school, Dave has worked in the bar business, culminating with owning a bar and restaurant in Chicago for seven years, where he was able to sample several hundred different brands of beer, wine and sake on an annual basis. This experience and beer education has lead him to work for the Cicerone Certification Program, which is the beer industry equivalent to a wine Sommelier certification program. He works as a consultant and beer educator when he’s not grading, writing and proctoring Cicerone exams.
Dave is also an AHA member, homebrewer, and a beer judge at the Beverage Testing Institute (BTI) in Chicago.
