The Art and Science of Brewing

16 Sterling Drive
Craftsbury Common, VT

The School of the New American Farmstead at Sterling College is offering a new five-day course in “The Art & Science of Brewing.” Students will be mentored by Danish craft brewing experts Anders Kissmeyer of Royal Unibrew A/S, and Jan Paul of Svaneke Bryghus as they learn to produce beer that is as artful and sustainable as it is delicious.

Kissmeyer and Paul, internationally acclaimed brewing experts, will lead students in a one-week intensive course in the heart of Vermont, home to over 50 award-winning craft breweries. Students learn both in the classroom and behind the scenes at some of Vermont’s most acclaimed craft breweries, including a tour and tasting session at the acclaimed Hill Farmstead Brewery. Students will roll up their sleeves and have sessions in raw materials, yeast, malting, brewing, fermentation, barrel aging, bottle conditioning, cold hopping, cask ale, microscopy, and plating. The course also incorporates fundamental microbiological concepts, critical safety considerations, beer classification, beer styles, and sensory evaluation.

The last time this class was offered, it filled up in a matter of days. Online registration is now open,
