Mattie Beason, owner of Durham’s Black Twig Cider House, will be teaching monthly cider classes starting in June.

Beason, a cider instructor for the U.S. Association of Cider Makers, will teach the one-hour class. Guests will get to try four different ciders, including a Basque cider from the restaurant’s txotx, a Spanish cider barrel. The upcoming dates are 3-4 p.m. June 11, July 23 and Aug. 27.

Class costs $20 per person and can be purchased online: brownpapertickets.com/event/2540717. Students will receive a Black Twig cider glass to take home.

Save the date: Black Twig will host a cider festival on Sept. 10. The event will bring together chefs and producers of local, national and international ciders. Black Twig’s co-owner and chef John Eisensmith will cook a whole deboned, sausage-stuffed local pig from Firsthand Foods for the event.

Black Twig Cider House is 2812 Erwin Road, #104, Durham.
