Captain Lawrence Brewing Co.
444 Saw Mill River Rd.
Elmsford, NY 10523

Join us as we explore a number of brewing and beer topics while enjoying the best beers that Captain Lawrence has to offer. Perfect for the craft beer novice or longtime enthusiast looking to learn more, these classes will offer a taste of what craft beer has to offer and help you make an informed decision about what you’re putting into your glass. Hang out with fellow beer lovers, discuss all things beer, enjoy some pizza and savor beers brewed just steps away and impress your friends and family with your newfound craft beer savvy.


A change of seasons signals another shift in your favorite brewery’s offerings. Snow, ice and below-freezing temperatures call for hearty beers that make the weather outside less frightful. Stouts, porters, brown ales and barrel-aged treats are the perfect fit for these colder months.

What are some of the unifying characteristics of these “winter” styles? How have they evolved over the years? What are some of the ingredients that make them stand out?

Join us as we discuss these questions and sample some of the best cold weather beers that Captain Lawrence has to offer! To top it all off, we’ll be throwing in some pizzas from our new pizza oven for everyone to enjoy.

Topics Include

  • The history behind stouts, porters, scotch ales and other malty classics
  • How different varieties of malt play a crucial role during the brewing process
  • Common flavor profiles and characteristics of darker beers
  • The impact of barrel-aging on beer

Price of Tuition Covers:

  • 5 pours of Captain Lawrence beers
  • 1 “Special Guest” pour
  • Family Style pizzas
