Can't get the team together for a cold one?
Well we offer beer/seltzer tastings to bring people together, learn a little, taste beers/seltzers, and share a laugh – all in the comfort of their own homes.
A unique online alternative to the after drinks catch up for corporate teams wanting to connect, bond and put a smile on the face of their corporate family.
Bring your team into the virtual brewery!
We want to welcome your team into our home, get you a virtual tasting paddle, and take the edge off.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our team (Scotty the Founder, Rowan the Sales and Marketing Guru, and occasional special guests) have hosted dozens of virtual beer/seltzer tastings, in many forms, including: social groups, corporate teams, birthday parties, trivia nights and comparative beer/seltzer/wine/coffee/food/etc tastings with brewers, distillers, chefs, coffee roaster, winemakers and sommeliers.
We cater for beer and non-beer drinks with inclusion of the seltzers. A great way to ensure all the team can be part of it.
On the night, we’ll be ready on Zoom at the start time, equipped with as much or as little information as is needed for the group. The exact content usually depends on the dynamic of the session, and we are confident that with our experience, we’ll get to know the group quickly and host them through a great time.
As a general rule, we follow something along the lines of the following:
* Open a beer/seltzer, taste
* The history of beer, with a link into who we are, why we do what we do, etc at Wolf.
* Taste, laugh
* The basics of brewing, including virtually being part of the brew, ie understanding the process in action, touching the grains, etc
* Taste, laugh
* The main ingredients: hops, malt, water, yeast
* Taste, laugh some more....
* Different beer styles, including how we make our 'real' seltzer, barrel aging, 'wild / natural ferment' sour beers, etc
* Laughs, chats, more laughs, did we say taste...
