BVG 4010 - Beer Styles and Service

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): BVG 3010

Description: In this course, students will study the recognized beer styles common of traditional and modern interpretations of worldwide beer regions. The cultural history and the interaction of local customs in the production and service of regional beers is an important aspect of beer style. In-depth sensory analysis of appropriate aromas, foam, color, and tastes of beers are reviewed in open and blind tastings. Recognition of faults common in beer brewing are an integral component to laboratory activities, including production and storage flaws, as well as aspects of service that enhance and detract from beer quality. Draft systems and appropriate design, operation, and maintenance of direct draw, pump, and mixed gas systems are reviewed and practiced in laboratory settings.

Note: All students must present valid ID in order to be served alcohol. Students under the age of 21 years may taste, but not consume alcohol under the State of Colorado “Sip and Spit” law (18-13-122, C.R.S., 12-47-801 C.L.C) and comply with department consumption policies.
