    Today’s beer consumer has more options than ever, and when faced with hundreds of different beers, how do you choose what to drink? Join beer writer and aficionado, Jon Abernathy, for a presentation on beer styles, and a special BYOB virtual tasting. 21+.

    If you want to sip along, purchase a total of 4 beers, one of each of the four beer styles in this list put together by Jon Abernathy:

    BEER LIST:
    Hazy IPA (also called New England IPA, and can include Milkshake IPA)
    1. Sunriver Brewing makes excellent hazy IPAs, though I don't know what specifically is on the shelves right now; anything labeled as such is a great choice
    2. Boss Rambler Beer Club brews a number of hazies very much to the new style; the Sea Dodge IPA can be ordered from their website, and others are on tap at their taproom
    3. Deschutes Brewery's Fresh Haze Hazy IPA is approachable and a good choice too.
    4. Any other Hazy IPA in this category would be fine, depending on what's available.

    Sour beers -particularly the "kettle sour" style that is soured with lactobacillus
    1. Bend Brewing Company's Ching Ching is a great starting beer in this category that includes fruit
    2. Wild Ride Brewing has their line of Tarty to the Party sours, also with fruit
    3. 10 Barrel's Crush series are all sours and offer some variety
    4. Immersion Brewing has a sour called Sexy Girlfriend as well

    Pilsner and other craft lagers
    1. Crux Pilz from Crux Fermentation Project is a terrific example of these new(er) American craft lagers
    2. Worthy Brewing has Sol Power Pilsner which is another nice one
    3. Three Creeks Brewing Tres Arroyos Mexican Lager
    4. Cascade Lakes Brewing High Desert Lotus Pils

    Porter - going back to a classic style
    1. Deschutes' Black Butte Porter is a style benchmark and definitely a great choice
    2. Three Creeks' FivePine Chocolate Porter is excellent as well
    3. Wild Ride's Nut Crusher Peanut Butter Porter is fun for a flavorful twist
    4. Any other porter or even another dark style like stout is fine and I can answer questions about.Jon Abernathy wrote "Bend Beer: A History of Brewing in Central Oregon", and has been blogging about craft beer since 2004 when he launched “The Brew Site,” a blog dedicated to all things beer and brewing that has documented the change and rapid growth of the local brewing scene. Jon’s been drinking and homebrewing beer for far longer, judges homebrew competitions, and served as the president of the local Central Oregon Homebrewers Organization for three years.

    Discuss Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in A Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou online via Zoom.
    Books available on Libby or pick-up at Sisters Library.

    In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: the technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When the author, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions, both the author and the newspaper were threatened with lawsuits. Undaunted, the paper ran the first of dozens of Theranos articles in late 2015. By early 2017, the company's value was zero and Holmes faced potential legal action from the government and her investors. The biggest corporate fraud since Enron is a cautionary tale set amid the bold promises and gold-rush frenzy of Silicon Valley
