Dp you want some suds on campus? You won't necessarily have to hide them at California Polytechnic University in Pomona. Like a growing number of schools, that college offers training on beer brewing. Student brewers can get immediate feedback from their peers because their beer is sold at campus dining facilities. The Associated Press reports:
“To make the beer here and sell the beer here and have a cafe and have an educational component, we’re the first to have put all those pieces together,” Aaron Neilson, director of dining services for the Cal Poly Foundation, said over a lunch of pizza and — of course — beer at the school’s new Innovation Brew Works.
A few feet away, senior chemistry major Stephen Moser was in the back room of this former campus bookstore, brewing up a batch of ale. In a few weeks, his work will end up in the glasses of patrons in the brew works’ cafe, where signs at the front doorremind people to drink responsibly.
