Looking for something fun, unique and tasty for your best gal pal this Valentine's Day? How about a romantic trip to the coast and a special beer-tasting journey just for her?

Lisa Morrison, aka the Beer Goddess, is hosting one of her popular women-only beer classes at Fort George Brewery & Public House on Feb. 20. It's called Hoppy Housewives. You don't have to be a housewife to attend, but you do have to be a woman! The two-hour afternoon class takes ladies on an entertaining and educational tour of several beer styles, as Lisa shares tips on pairing beer with food, cooking with beer -- participants even get a take-home recipe book -- and great stories about beer's HERstory (instead of history). Light fare in the form of finger food and tapas will be provided so students don't get hungry!image

Don't forget, it's also Stout Month at the Fort George, with rotating stouts on draft from countless different breweries all month! Class attendees and their escorts are encouraged to make a weekend of it by booking a room at the newly opened Commodore Hotel, nearly right across the street from the brew pub!  Details: http://www.commodoreastoria.com/

Please note: Lisa is teaming up with Fort George and the Commodore to offer a contest to win a package that includes one entry to Hoppy Housewives and one night's stay for two in a deluxe cabin at the Commodore Astoria, valued at more than $100. Listen to "Beer O'Clock!," Saturday, Feb. 6 at 3 p.m. on kxl.com or check out the podcast on iTunes or kxl.com for details on how to enter.

As she mentions in the link, the event sells out quickly.  It is possible between Zwickelmania and Valentines Day, there are some slots available because people forgot about this event.
