CSU–Pueblo Continuing Education offers Zymurgy Institute with Bristol Brewery

Colorado State University-Pueblo’s Continuing Education operation in Colorado Springs is offering an entertaining, non-credit 11-month, 20-lecture series on all aspects of beer production and history.

According to Dean of Continuing Education James Malm, the name of the series, Zymurgy Institute, comes from zymurgy, the branch of applied chemistry that deals with fermentation processes, as in brewing beer.

For just $249 for 20 sessions, interested persons will gain refreshing knowledge from University scholars and industry experts on the scientific study of fermentation and beer production in conjunction with Bristol Brewing Company in Colorado Springs. No college credit is offered through this educational opportunity. Individual lectures are available at $15 each. Lectures will be held at 7 p.m. each 2nd and 4th Monday from August 2009 through June of 2010 on everything from the microbiology of beer to packaging, marketing, politics and prohibition, industrial safety, as well as the representation of beer in the arts. A complete lecture schedule follows:

The Continuing Education courses will be offered in the Bristol Brewing Company Tasting Room at 1647 South Tejon Street in Colorado Springs. Because space is limited, advance reservations are necessary.
