Barley and Me 

Between Wine and Ale

Blithering Idiot! Old Foghorn! Wait: What's that? Is Great-Uncle Maurice drunkenly shouting epithets at Sunday dinner again? No, no — those are just names of two excellent barley wines. (Although, if Maurice wants to get tanked at the family supper, barley wine might be the way to go; we're talking 8.5 to 12 percent ABV here.) Dubbed "wines" because of their high alcohol content, barley wines are actually ales. And, like their grape counterparts, good barley wines can become even better over time. Learn more at the Barley Wine in the Wintertime class, which goes from 6:30 to 8 p.m. tonight at Whole Foods Market (1601 South Brentwood Boulevard, Brentwood). Join Whole Foods' beer specialist, Andy Snead, on this beeriffic journey; you'll have the opportunity to try local, imported, fresh and cellared varieties, and light snacks are also provided. The class fee is $20, and you can get more information by visiting or calling 314-968-7744.
