Beer Connoisseurs: Appalachian State University

Appalachian students with an interest in the fermentation sciences can get hands-on experience at the North Carolina campus’ Ivory Tower Brewery during brewing class, which began as an honors chemistry course. In June of 2012, a Bachelor of Science degree program in Fermentations Sciences was approved. Now, budding brewers can dedicate a full four years to learning how to brew, ferment and market their own products. Additionally, the school’s annual High Country Beer Fest features student-made selections and other regional microbrews from producers such as the Triangle Brewing Company, which is known for its easy-drinking Belgian- and American-style ales.
