BJCP listing of Lager, minus Bock, at tonight's Office Hours with the Publican.

The format of Office Hours this fall was described in a previous post: Office Hours with the Publican returns on Monday, September 13, with a special "guest bottle" theme.

For tonight's session, we begin in earnest, with BJCP style guidelines as a broad overview, plus our own pre-existing guest bottle list, and a half-dozen beers for sampling. We'll be tackling and tasting the first four BJCP lager categories (and their sub-categories): Light Lager, Pilsner, European Amber Lager and Dark Lager. In case you're wondering, Bock is being reserved for its own night of exploration.

Given limitations in inventory, and the sheer size required of any comprehensive list attempted in this day and age, what stays and what goes? Which styles are necessary to educate? How do we decide?

We'll start at 6:30 p.m. in Prost.
