CORE 475 - Beer Culture


Prerequisites: Core 101-105 and at least sixth semester standing.  Must be 21 years of age to participate.
Delivery: Other
More than 4000 years before the Common Era, Babylonians were devising recipes for making beer.  Since then, evidence exists that the fermenting of grains has occurred on every continent.  From Ancient Egyptians to Asiatic peoples, from Assyrian to Incan cultures, from southern Africa to northern Europe, beer has served as nourishment, social lubricant, currency, product of trade, and a source of tax revenue.  Through visits to world famous breweries, interaction with professional brewers, trips to farm and field harvesting sites, historical consumption locations and museums, along with hands-on lab activities to produce and sample beers, this course examines four specific aspects of this essential product: the chemistry of beer, the craft of beer, the cultural role of beer, and the industry of beer production.
