Classes


At Cyclone Liquors, we love what we do––and even more––we love sharing our passion with others. Education has always been a founding principle of Cyclone Liquors, and it remains one of our foremost priorities. We pride ourselves in having the best-trained staff in the state, and support this with a wide variety of wine, beer and liquor tastings for our customers. Our scheduled classes are hosted by Roger and Cale, and focus on the appreciation and study of fine drinking products in a low stress and enjoyable atmosphere. We also design private group classes tailored to the interests of your group, club, or association’s members.

 

Connoisseur Classes

Tastings for wine connoisseurs include a short informal presentation followed by a sampling of a variety of wines. Each class is unique--offering new wines, new experiences and new knowledge. Led by our wine experts, our classes welcome experienced and beginning tasters alike. Products are often unique and paired to give the class a good cross section of a particular region, style or price point.

 

Beer Classes

Beer lovers can celebrate their passion for new brews and gain knowledge of both domestic and international varieties.  These classes give beer enthusiasts a chance to sample all sorts of style and types with an informal educational component. Try local brews, international and the latest trends. All classes are led by an expert and set in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

 

Spirit Classes

For those who appreciate fine liquors––and those who want to learn more about them––our Bourbon, Spirits or Scotch whisky tastings offer a chance to explore nuances and flavors in a welcoming environment.  Learn the process of distillation and production while sampling examples.

 

Cocktail Classes

Looking to add to the menu at home? These cocktail classes are a great way to try new recipes, incorporate new and old favorite ingrediants, learn the process of cocktail preparation and maybe even a few other tips and tricks along the way. Guided the whole way, you will help in creating a drink worth enjoying. 

 

Cellar Master Classes

Only the best! Our Cellar Master classes let you sample top shelf beer wine and spirits, all in hopes of helping you create your perfect cellar. We offer the expertise, without the snobbery, in informal and welcoming environments.
