The Science of Beer

A panel of expert brewers representing the large scale corporate breweries, established craft breweries, and the local home brewing industry will join us to discuss the Science of Beer. Before the beer hits your glass it is analyzed, examined under microscopes and tested in labs. Whether you are a home brewer, a connoisseur, or just like to kick back and enjoy any brew, come and learn about the science that goes into America’s adult beverage of choice. Learn about the process from malting to mashing to fermentation. Ask about the ingredients, conditions, equipment and supervision it takes to get the flavor you crave.


The discussion will be led by a panel of local experts including:
Bruce Elam Trade Brewer for Shipyard Brewing Co.
David Yarrington, Director of Brewing Operations Smuttynose Brewing Co.
Tom Neel Candia Road Brewing
Otto Kuhn, Sr. Brewmaster Anheuser Busch Merrimack Brewery

If you know ahead that you will be attending, please RSVP on Eventbrite.
