Guam - A beer aficionado is on island. Justin Lamontange comes to Guam with 13 years of beer experience under his belt (no pun intended).  Today at the Hyatt Regency Guam on Tumon Bay he conducted a training workshop for anyone who sells, serves of just like to drink beer sold by Mid-Pac Distributors.

"It's just to let people know that beer is more than that yellow, fizzy party liquid," he said of his curriculum.  "It actually has a lot of history a lot of heritage and there is a lot of complexity behind beer that people don't really know.  Wine has sort of been the forefront of the higher-end, sophisticated beverage, but beer is very complex.  It has more ingredients than wine, which allows for more flavors."

You can have a chance to meet Lamontange and learn more about the wonders of beer tomorrow at a "Premuim Brew Dinner" event at the Hyatt and with feature a four-course beer incorporated dinner.  Tickets are $75 per person or $65 for Club Vino members.

For more information, call Susan at 648-3821.
