The Appalachian State University Brewing Short Course is intended for those working within the brewing industry and the advanced home brewer; specifically those considering starting a business or intent on increasing their proficiency and understanding of fundamental brewing principles and technologies.
Course material is intended to provide the participant with information relevant to testing modules offered by the Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD) while providing thorough discussions around standard brewery operations. Participants will spend each morning in classroom discussions followed by an introduction to production-level sensory analysis. Afternoons will include hands-on coverage of laboratory skills and analysis, additional classroom discussions, and finishing the day with sensory sessions based on both major and obscure beer styles from around the world.

Laboratory sessions are hands-on and intended to provide training as well as an introduction to equipment and basic laboratory setup for a small- to medium-sized brewery. Participants may take away wort if they desire. (Bring your own carboy and airlock or buy these on-site).
All course material will be made available in digital format for attendees.
