On Thursday, March 29th, Eataly is ditching the pasta and wine and taking a field trip to Germany for some sausage and beer instead. Join Chris Lohrig of Notch Brewing Co. for this Masterclass on German and Czech Lagers, where you’ll get the lowdown on lager (what it is, how it’s made, why it’s not an ale) and taste your way through a range of Salem’s finest suds. The Eataly kitchen will provide plenty of sausages—German beer’s best friend—for an easy pairing while you learn and talk shop with Chris during the Q&A. Tickets for this cheerful beer-full are $40, and it runs from 6:00 to 7:00pm. Check it out this way.
