The Science of Beer

Let’s geek it up a notch. Have you ever wondered why a hefeweizen tastes like bananas? Probably. Have you ever wondered what is the biochemical pathway for the formation of isoamyacetate and what metabolic conditions favor this pathway? Only if you’re a giant nerd who loves beer. This class is for you. Imagine Craft Beer 101, but explained by looking at yeast secondary metabolites with respect to finished beer flavour profile.There will be chemical structures drawn on a white board, just like high school chemistry class, only this is something you actually want to learn.

Check the events calendar and the education events tab for updated information.
