To be a student at the Zymurgy Institute is one thing that I wish I got for Christmas! The series of classes on beer, brewing, and the history and science of beer are run at Bristol Brewing Co. and looks to be sponsored by CSUPueblo. The class starts in February and will run the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month until June. Here’s more information on what the Zymurgy Institute 3.0 is all about. If you are interested, I believe there is still some space, so visit Bristol’s page and fill out the form:
Zymurgy (zī’mûr’jē) -n. The branch of applied chemistry that deals with fermentation processes, as in brewing beer.
Gain refreshing knowledge on the scientific study of fermentation and production beer brewing with Colorado State University-Pueblo Continuing Education and Bristol Brewing Company in Colorado Springs. Join us every 2nd and 4th Monday at 7pm from February to June 2011 to learn from university scholars and industry experts on this fasci- nating topic. We’ll teach you every- thing you ever wanted to know about the art and business of beer in the Bristol Brewing Company Tasting Room at 1647 South Tejon Street, Colorado Springs.
