This course will give insight into the rapidly expanding world of craft brewing. Through classroom lecture and hands-on lab work in the on-campus brewery, the course will introduce students to the art and science of brewing. Students will gain a working knowledge of beer ingredients, brewing equipment, and techniques. They will also be exposed to basic organic chemistry and biology of beer. The class will give students knowledge and experience that will serve them well should they choose a beer-centric career, whether at a brewpub, in retail sales, or in general beverage management. It will also bring them to a starting point from which they could continue their education to pursue professional brewers training.
