Arlington, VA’s EatBar wants to help you go “back to school” this month to learn more about just the kind of thing that might end a character up on an after-school special: Alcohol. They are presenting a series of three “lessons” this week on beer, wine, and spirits.

On Tuesday, the team from Left Hand Brewing will be on hand to discuss their brewing process and give out free Left Hand glassware with every purchase. They will be pouring their Milk Stout, Polestar Pilsner, and 400 Pound Monkey IPA. Wine is the focus on Wednesday, when Pacific Northwest winery Owen Roe stop buy for a tasting and brief lesson in oenology.

Thursday evening, stop by to hear about a local distillery that has been making spirits in Virginia since Prohibition. The master distiller of A. Smith Bowman in Fredericksburg will discuss his small-batch and single-barrel bourbons and Virginia gin while students enjoy tastes and special cocktails made from the ingredients.
