Office Hours tonight: "Category 22 — Smoke-Flavored/Wood-Aged Beer."

Office Hours with the Publican is winding down before summer break, but we still have two BJCP style categories remaining for reviewing and sampling before calling it a year.

Tonight (Monday, May 16), it’s Category 22 — Smoke-Flavored/Wood-Aged Beer:

22A. Classic Rauchbier
22B. Other Smoked Beer
22C. Wood-Aged Beer

As many of you know, these styles are among my personal favorites. We begin deliberations at 6:30 p.m. at the Public House, back in the rear area of Prost.

Next Monday, May 23, will be the grab bag known as 23. SPECIALTY BEER, which completes the BJCP style examination we began last summer.

The following Monday, May 30, is the Memorial Day holiday, and there'll be no Office Hours. However, there may well be a final hurrah on Monday, June 6 … more on that one later.
