For those around North Bay, our friend Jay is teaching a Craft Beer Appreciation Program at Sonoma State this semester.
Want to learn more about beer? Take my beer appreciation class through Sonoma State University's Extended Education School this spring, beginning on February 18.... Come to the loft at Lagunitas tomorrow night, January 21, from 6:30 to 9:30 to learn more about it. I'll be on hand to answer your questions and talk about what you can expect from the 12-week, 36-hours course. (http://www.sonoma.edu/exed/beer/)

Congrats to High Water Brewing and all the other winners of a 2015 Good Food Award! Winners were just announced last night. (I was a cider judge this year, though my beer allegiance has not wavered.)
