The German Society's Tastings with Marnie Old

Out of all the participants who have participated in our Beer and Wine Tastings, there was not one who left without a wonderfully warm feeling...and it was not all due to the libations! 

What made this lovely experience possible was the service of Marnie Old.



Read below to find out when you can next find Marnie at the Society...



German Beer Seminar at the German Society

Germany is home to the world's most popular beer styles, largely thanks for a centuries-old tradition of brewing with quality ingredients and to the crisp refreshment of lager-fermented brews.

Join Philadelphia's leading drinks author, Marnie Old, and the Philadelphia Roller Girls for an entertaining and informative seminar and guided tasting, presented in the our historic Auditorium.

Taste your way through the heritage of German beers and discover a wealth of deliciously drinkable styles of every color and weight as we explore Germany's rich traditions and distinctive flavors.

Sample 10 distinctive regional German and Austrian beers that range from Weissbier and Kölsch to Dunkel and Doppelbock.
