Office Hours surveys English, Irish and Scots ales, tonight.

Tonight's gathering of the Office Hours seminar, to which the public is cordially invited for the low price of $5 each, takes place at 6:30 p.m. in Prost (Pizzeria & Public House).

We continue our survey through the Beer Judge Certification Program style guidelines with a mind toward completing the long overdue bottled beer list reform program. While tonight's categories are many, there are few available examples of some, so it should be possible to cover all the ground. Expect more examples of Extra Special/Strong Bitter and Wee Heavy, a few (if any) of the others. Cheers.

Category 8 — English Pale Ale
8A. Standard/Ordinary Bitter
8B. Special/Best/Premium Bitter
8C. Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale)

Category 9 — Scottish and Irish Ale
9A. Scottish Light 60/-
9B. Scottish Heavy 70/-
9C. Scottish Export 80/-
9D. Irish Red Ale
9E. Strong Scotch Ale
