The Black Squirrel offers a free beer cocktail class for ladies

Attention, women of Washington: The Black Squirrel wants to introduce you to the world of beer-based cocktails. Tonight from 7 to 9 p.m., the Adams Morgan beer bar is offering a free hands-on class led by Morgan Tramontana, who does double duty as the Black Squirrel's manager and mixologist, and local beer guru Brett Robison.

The duo will teach attendees how to make five beer cocktails using Goose Island beers, and then participants will get to try their hand at one of five workstations Tramontana is stocking with liquor, bitters and beer – and then they can drink their creations. Once the class is over, everyone is invited to hang out and order one of Tramontana and Robison's beer concoctions, or sip on a Goose Island beer. The Chicago brewery is buying everyone's first round.

While the class is free, an RSVP is required. Women interested in participating should call the bar at 202-232-1011 to save a spot, or e-mail Tramontana directly.

The Black Squirrel hosts occasional events targeted at female beer drinkers, including All Ale the Ladies during the Craft Brewers Conference.
