Sensory Analysis of Beer (4 Courses)
This is a four-part series of non-credit courses that will expose you to the difference between similar beer styles in the brewing industry. You will be given information on similar beer styles and how to discern one from another. This course will focus on how to tell the differences between beers such as porters and stouts, various pale ales, sour beers, etc.
Through this course, you will learn how to implement your own evaluation at whatever brewery you find yourself. By the end of the course, you should have a strong understanding of how to discern between similar beer styles on opposite ends of the beer flavor spectrum.
