Events

From formal lectures to casual tastings, John Holl has created customized events for companies both large and small, and for private groups. Each event is paired with local, specialty, or rare beers and can be combined with a food pairing experience.

No event is too big or too small and each is catered to your specific needs and budget. Learn about the history of craft beer, how to pair beer and food, or take a deep dive into how the ingredients of beer affect flavor and aroma.

A beer tasting is a great team building experience or a fun way to reward employees for a job well done. Contact John Holl to learn more about booking a special beer tasting or event.
