CHEM 395-610 – Brewing Science in England

A Summer 2018 Faculty-Led Study Abroad Chemistry Course in London, England

The purpose of this course is to explore how brewing science is applied in England through lectures and visits to historical and modern sites in brewing. Differences from brewing science as practiced in the U.S. will be emphasized. In addition, emphasis on the application of the science to addressing key issues in brewing will be made.

This course is NOT an introduction to beer brewing or to brewing science. Participating in this course assumes that you are familiar with the basics of brewing science (via either CHEM 370 or personal experiences) and that you have been exposed to many different styles of beer. This course will explore the history of brewing in England and cover the applications of brewing science to solving problems in brewing in England (from a social, political, economic, and societal perspective). We’ll take in-depth tours of breweries, maltings, and etc. in England to examine first-hand the processes for brewing and explore how they differ from those used in the US (including exploring some of the laws and regulations around brewing that result in different societal impacts).

If this is your first course in brewing science, we will spend some time prior to the trip to England to provide an overview of the processes involved.
