Spend three fun hours with your hands in the dough, learning what makes bread great, how a starter lives (and how to keep her happy), how to shape your loaf and prepare it for the oven, and how to mix and fold a classic white loaf. Happy tastebuds, happy tummy.

This is the one type of school you’ll be down to attend: beer school. From words like ‘dry hopped sour’ to ‘wild farmhouse’ to ‘Porter’ to ‘Stout,’ all the terminology surrounding brews can get a little bit… confusing. This event is for those who want some clarity. Or want to look like they know what they’re talking about. Here’s lookin’ at you, (of-age) kid

Where: Henderson Brewing Company – 128A Sterling Road
When: Thursday, January 17 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm

This traditional Alpine dinner will feature 250 grams of imported raclette cheese, a charcuterie plate, salad, bread and “as many potatoes as you need.” You’ll also get a glass of French wine.
