Back by popular demand, Finest City Improv will hit the stage for a summer tour of the next best way to taste beer: a six-sensory explosion of tastes, smells, sights, sounds, touch and joy. This summer, Finest City Improv invites those 21 and up to its Brew School’d series at Burning Beard Brewers on Saturday, July 23 and Mission Brewing on Saturday, August 13.
For each performance, improvisers will transform the tasting rooms at Burning Beard and Mission Brewing into theaters with a stage, seating and sound. Finest City will invite guests to participate in the interactive performance that pairs beer with an unusual complement: improv.
For each show, Finest City Founder and CEO Amy Lisewski will narrate as a cast of four extravagant characters and one real-life brew master evaluate four beers for the audience’s enjoyment, tasting the microbrews simultaneously.
“Brew School’d is the beer pairing event for people who love local San Diego breweries, but want to pair their drinks with something more than happy hour appetizers,” says Lisewski. “Strap in for a hilarious series of shows that both comedy and craft beer lovers will appreciate under one joyful roof.”
As a sans-script show, Brew School’d relies on audience participation. Attendees can expect to have an active role in shaping their evening entertainment, ultimately earning an honorary certificate in a topic everyone in San Diego should study—craft beer. Past events at local breweries such as Green Flash, Karl Strauss and Groundswell have been met with big laughs and rave reviews.
Founded in 2011, Finest City Improv performs bold comedy every Thursday through Sunday evening with a goal of bringing people together and spreading joy through laughter. As Lisewski says, “Life is just more enjoyable when you are laughing.” In this case, laughing over a flight of local beers.
