Join Tim Boland, executive director of the Polly Hill Arboretum on Martha’s Vineyard and Julie Jenney, educational programs coordinator for an afternoon of tasting, learning, and talking about beer.

Julie will cover the styles of beer from wheat to lambics, craft beers, what glasses to use and why the shape matters. We'll share some of our favorites and let you know where to find them. Beer stories, history, tips, and lots of tasting will make an afternoon not to be missed. Cost includes tastes of beer, and hearty, delicious snacks to accompany the beverages. Limited to 35.
