BREW 100: Window Sill Tapping at MadTree – 8/5 at 2 pm

The third in series of beers designed by Carla’s BREW 100 class is set to be tapped this Friday at 2:00 pm at MadTree. If you recall, the first two were Gramma (an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie stout brewed at Rhinegeist) and Brewschool 100 Curve Ball (a black IPA brewed at the Moerlein Lager House).

BREW 100: Window Sill is a strawberry-rhubarb American Hefeweizen with ginger. Four of the students from the spring semester class (Mike Hughes, Chris Marshall, David Ovens and Troy Sparks) joined us at MadTree last month to help brew the beer with Ryan Blevins and other members of the MadTree team. Ryan and Matt Rowe worked with the class back in March to design the beer and name it. It was especially appropriate for Ryan to be working with the class since he is a Cincinnati State graduate.

As previously announced, the fall BREW 100 class will be working with Urban Artifact to create their class beer. Students also have the opportunity to complete their Cicerone Certified Beer Server or Master Brewers Association of the Americas (MBAA) Associate Brew Steward certification as part of the class.

BREW 100 (Introduction to Craft Beer) is one of eight courses that are part of the new Brewing Sales and Marketing Certificate being offered at Cincinnati State Technical and Community this fall. To admitted into the certificate program or to take BREW 100 as a non-degree seeking student, go to http://www.cincinnatistate.edu/admission-financial-aid/admissions/admission-process on the Cincinnati State website. For more information on the certificate or the two-year brewing degree to be offered starting in the fall of 2017 (pending state approval), email Carla at carla.gesell-streeter@cincinnatistate.edu
