WVC offers spring quarter brewing course
|Submitted by WVC|
Wenatchee Valley College is offering a five-credit, spring-quarter Humanities and Brewing course for those 21 years of age and older.
Humanities and Brewing: A Cultural and Historical Perspective will teach students about brewing history, culture, and application, from the ancient origins of brewing to the modern development of the brewing industry, as well as the recent proliferation of whole-grain micro-brewing. Students will relate the social and scientific aspects of brewing to practical applications of whole-grain brewing.
The class will be held Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturday April 12, April 26, May 10, May 24 and June 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Humanities and Brewing will be team-taught by WVC humanities faculty Jack Johnson and chemistry faculty Richard Logan.
"Part of the inspiration for creating the class was the great interest in micro- and home-brewing," said Johnson. "It really has been growing."
Registration for continuing and former students began Feb. 18; registration for new students began Feb. 24. Spring quarter classes start March 31.
