GRPM is offering "Beer Explorers" classes this spring and summer.

At the March 15 class, you can learn all about hops with Elk Brewing. You'll find out from propagator, to grower, to processor, and finally to brewer, what each role does with hops and what they are looking for within the hops.

This class includes 3 beer samples plus admission to explore the 1st and 2nd floor of the Museum. Tickets are $10 for Museum members, and $20 for non-members.
