The Cal Aggie Alumni Association Alumni Wine & Beer Program presents Aggie Brew!

Join us as the "Pope of Foam" Charlie Bamforth guides us through an afternoon of lively discussion about the craft beer industry while sampling beers from fellow Aggie Alums!

Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy samples of 4 different beers all produced by Aggies! Each beer will be paired with it's own small appetizer. An Aggie from each brewery will walk us through a discussion of their beer, the impact UC Davis has made in their career, how the beer pairs with the selected appetizer, and a general discussion of the craft beer industry.

After the tasting, there will be a Q&A segment with Charlie and the speakers, where you can enjoy a pint of your favorite beer from the tasting! Guests will also receive a small gift to take home!
