18th Hour + Charly Nelson Art Opening

Each week, we open our doors to bring you delicious food and drink. 18th Hour Café offers a changing weekly menu of craft beer, amazing wine, cheese, charcuterie and Tartine bread; prices range from $3-$20. The café features a curated schedule of art exhibits, a growing cookbook library, our instructor-curated retail shop and music. 


Beers Worth Celebrating

A two hour tasting seminar. Hearty snacks (e.g., bread, cheese, charcuterie, etc.) will be served.

Since the dawn of civilization, special beers have been brewed to celebrate winter, religious holidays, and the New Year. From rich beers that sustain monks during fasts, to nuanced British winter warmers, to malty, ice-distilled beers, to boozy US craft beers that make up new holiday traditions, this tasting event will cover a wide variety of beer history and regional flavors.


Sparkling Wines + Champagne

Champagne may be the most celebrated sparkling wine, but is not necessarily most celebratory; there are certainly other wonderful options for a crisp, dry, elegant toast. During this two hour tasting seminar, Pamela Busch will discuss what makes Champagne truly unique (and therefore, more expensive) and will discuss the various methods by which other sparkling wines are produced (including méthode champenoise).  She will guide you through a tasting of two Champagnes and four sparkling wines.  

Join us, and find the perfect bottle for your holiday meal!
