Very short notice on these events, but if you're interested in learning more about beer, read on.

Events will be held in Dublin and Cork as hosts multi-sensory beer tasting experiences in Cork on Thursday November 8th, and at 4 Dame Lane on Monday to Wednesday November 12th - 14th.

I have attended tastings with both Marc and Fiona in the past (link) and would really recommend these events if you are starting out on your beer education.
