A new series for the 21+ crowd to explore a mature approach alcohol consumption will be kicking off this spring. Beginning in January 2018 and continuing through April, Beach Hillel’s new Drinking Like an Adult series will be for older undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, as well as young adults in the area.
Led by Rabbi Drew Kaplan, the new series will take place every other week at a different brewery and explore not only Jewish tradition, but also seek to educate young adults on appropriate drinking practices as they enter adulthood.
The Drinking Like an Adult series will take place every other week (except when it would occur on Passover) at different breweries in the Long Beach area, with the final one taking place at a nearby brewery. The series costs $36 and includes one beer at each session, with participants able to purchase more drinks on their own. Attendees who offer to serve as a designated [non-drinking] driver will receive a $5 gift card to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf each time.
The series kicks off on January 23rd at Ballast Point Brewing in Long Beach at 7pm, featuring an introduction on alcohol-drinking and Jewish tradition. Subsequent sessions will occur every other week to follow (except during Passover), with sessions occurring on February 6th, February 20th, March 6th, March 20th, and April 10th.
