Beer Styles with A Perfect Pint

October 8th, 2020 | 7:00 p.m. | Virtual Webinar

 

Join Thrivent Member Network – Twin Cities Region for this special virtual event! Based on grape varietals and/or place of origin, wine varieties are straightforward. To identify beer styles, one enters into a murky, ever-evolving world that includes sensory characteristics, history and tradition, ingredients, and brewing processes. Some style categories were recently invented by a single man. What is a beer style? How are they defined? Who oversees them? In this event, we’ll dive in headfirst in an attempt to answer those questions and explore the stories behind some of history’s most important styles.

Current Beer Trends & Themes with A Perfect Pint

October 29th, 2020 | 5:30 p.m. | Virtual Webinar

 

Join Thrivent Member Network – Twin Cities Region for this special virtual event! Brewers today are catering to a more diverse and demanding crowd. Beer fans are notoriously fickle, with little loyalty to brand or beer. They are constantly clambering for whatever the next thing is. To keep up and stay relevant, brewers must constantly produce something new. This has led to trend-chasing by both consumers and producers – like a dog chasing its tail. In this event, we will look at some of the current trendy beer styles from hazy IPA to milkshake and pastry beers.

Listen, Learn and Act

 

When there is a need, Thrivent members are quick to listen, learn and act. Below are some of the creative ways Thrivent is seeing members use Thrivent Action Teams to bring together friends and family to learn and act to address community needs.

 

Learn. Consider hosting a virtual book club or get together to connect with and learn alongside those close to you. Explore resources from your local library, bookstores, or faith leaders to help inform your conversations on issues of race and how it plays into your daily lives, families and experiences.

Give. Passionate about their local community organizations, members are raising funds to help those who need it most. Consider hosting a virtual fundraiser to support a local organization tackling these important issues. Reach out to your friends, family and co-workers and ask them to not only donate but spread the word of giving to their networks and expand your reach. Seed money can be used to purchase thank you notes and postage to share your gratitude.

Act. Our members are living in service, as they supply food, hygiene products and repair supplies to help rebuild their communities. Take action alongside them by hosting a drive with your friends, family and co-workers for essential items and provide contactless drop off at your home. Seed money can be used to purchase supplies like boxes or other items to transport the donations to the recipient organization. Please check in with your local outreach organizations to see what is in need and how they can best receive the supplies.
