Fountainhead School of Spirits Begins Tuesday, February 11
We're still nailing down a few final details but Fountainhead School of Spirits definitely will begin classes on the evening of Tuesday, February 11. Fountainhead is at 1970 W. Montrose. Classes will be held every Tuesday thereafter. I hope to be named Dean of Discipline, but I know I'm teaching the inaugural class, an Introduction to American Whiskey.
The way it will normally work is there will be four or five whiskeys tasted. We'll taste and talk. It will last about 90 minutes. It will be very informal and probably a bit geeky. I won't teach all of the courses, but probably will do all that involve American whiskey.
Registration, prices, and the complete schedule (at least through spring) will be on Fountainhead's web site soon. It's not up yet but I'll let you know when it is.
If you want to take a campus tour prior to classes starting, please do. Fountainhead is a casual neighborhood joint with a great selection of beer as well as whiskey and other spirits. Their kitchen takes a high-end artisanal approach to food and when possible they support local purveyors.
In that spirit, I think we'll have something from Koval for the first class.
ADDED THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 2014: Go here for the complete, detailed class schedule and to register and pay your all-important tuition.
