Welcome to Beeritas!



Do you love beer?  Like beer?  Like beer but want to learn to love it?  Love sitting around and watching other people drink beer?  If yes, welcome to Beeritas!  (If no, who are you?)

Beeritas is the official Beer Appreciation Society of Harvard Law School.  That’s right, if you were afraid your beer drinking days were over now that you are a big bad law student, we’re here for you.  We hold a tasting every other Monday — some curated by the current board, some led by representatives from local breweries.  Each tasting has a theme, and each of the 8 or so beers fit that theme in some way.  Past themes have included Oktoberfests and Fall Beers, East Coast vs. West Coast, Old World/New World, and Strange Beers. At each tasting, our Professor of Beer or the visiting brewer leads us through the various beers of the week.  You drink some beer, you learn just enough about beer to be pretentious at parties (but keep your snobbery away from Beeritas!), and you discuss nothing legal whatsoever- it’s the perfect mix!

In addition to our bi-weekly tastings, we also hold beer-themed events throughout the year that take advantage of our location in a great beer city, such as trips to local breweries and local beer festivals.  To cap it all off, the spring brings the Beeritas Beer Tournament, a March Madness-style bracket that has one singular goal: find the best beer on the planet!

All in all, Beeritas is a place for people who care about beer, beer in all shapes, sizes and styles.  If all of this sounds too good to be true, then welcome to Beeritas!
