What You Missed: Beer School

Posted By on Fri, Apr 4, 2008 at 9:36 AM

In St. Louis beer goes with more than just wedding receptions, picnics and PTA meetings. It's also paired delightfully with adopting animals.

For animal and beer lovers, the Humane Society of Missouri was the place to be Thursday evening. The Anheuser-Busch Beer School visited the Humane Society to explain the specifics in producing a fine-brewed beer. Some attendants came to learn and partake in beer tasting, while others wanted to get a close-up look at animals. Regardless, all wanted to support the Humane Society event, which the proceeds benefited the Chi Chi Anti-Cruelty Fund. This fund focuses on investigating, healing, and preventing animal abuse.

Leading the beer school discussion was Anheuser-Busch Beermaster, George Reisch. He described in-depth every step in brewing beer and why it is an integral part to the final product. In addition, he described the proper etiquette to drink beer and that the appearance, aroma, taste, all contribute to the enjoyment of beer.

After learning the specifics of beer, attendants toured\ the Humane Society of Missouri and got a first-hand look at all the animals in need of a home.

Kelly Fesler described how she finally got her husband, Steve, to visit the Humane Society with her.

“Being a female, I can never get him to come to the Humane Society. But when you mention beer, he signed up right away.”
