Beer 401: The Science of Beer
Are you interested in learning more about the science of brewing beer? This course will focus on the fundamental impact of pH and water, bittering and what chemically is causing specific flavors from the hops and other ingredients, the enzymatic pathway to the production of sugar and ultimately the alcohol, and how to quantify the color or darkness of beer. If this sounds exciting, you have found the right course, if this sounds intimidating, no worries, we will discuss meaningful scientific principles, but in a way that will be accessible to all.
Each Flying Dog University course ends with a tasting of flying Dog beers and includes a build-your-own-six-pack to take home. All attendees must be 21 or older. All sales are final and classes are nontransferable or refundable.
