In an effort to better themselves, as they often do, a group of Opera Bob's regulars decided to go back to school. The subject of study: beer. Why beer you ask? Well, it's because success in previous attempts at learning (even a lesson) by the members of this group would be considered marginal at best. At least with beer as the subject, the regulars would be a leg up, as they were already getting a lot of practical experience in the lab.
The dedicated group went through two gruelling sessions of beer school hosted by Mill St. brewmaster Joel Manning. The love of subject could be recognized when, after completion of beer school, the group agreed to meet once a month in order to continue its education - it was a truely remarkable commitment, based soley on the thirst for beer (knowledge). And so, the Opera Bob's Beer Club was born.
