United States Brewers' Academy

Mount Vernon, N.Y. 10551

Does your moonshine leave something to be desired? Here is a school that offers intensive instruction in the basic science, theory, and modern practice of malting, brewing, quality assurance, brewery engineering, and packaging. It's aimed at the executive who needs to review and update his/her knowledge of the entire brewing process and to become more familiar with industry suppliers. The course lasts two weeks. Tuition is $500.

The academy began long before you took your first drink. It was founded by Anton Schwarz, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1868 and established the First Scientific Station for Brewing in the U.S. in 1882. Schwarz helped introduce a pure yeast-culture system and was a pioneer in the use of the microscope to examine yeasts, wort, and beer.

To whet your appetite, here are some of the topics which are covered in the course: theory and practice of malting, hops and hop extracts, composition and role of water in brewing, brewing sugars and syrups, taste evaluation, cooling, carbonating, filtering, and finishing--not to mention bunging.

Not recommended for teetotalers.
