Like good beer, but not sure about what makes a hop a hop? Or a malt a malt? Join us to learn how to enjoy drinking good beer. John Lenzini, Head of Brewery Operations and Co-Founder of Schilling Beer Company in Littleton, NH, will delve deep into the chemistry of beer.

This 3-part series is held on 3 consecutive Tuesdays, beginning February 4, from 5:00 – 6:30 PM at the Fairbanks Museum. The cost is $40/member or $50/non-member. You must be 21 or older to participate.

For 20 years, John worked as an educator (teaching chemistry), coach, and administrator before co-founding Schilling Beer Company. His travels (over the course of a decade) and life in German-speaking Europe heavily influences Schilling’s distinct beermaking style. Over the course of this workshop’s three one and a half hour sessions, John will provide hands-on learning opportunities on the process of brewing.

This workshop is ideally suited both for those who took Chemistry of Beer last year and those who are new to the topic. John will build-on and add depth to last year’s topics of selecting malts and hops, yeast and fermentation, and identifying common off flavors in packaged beer.
