The Art + Science of Brewing

November 5, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

  • Thursday, November 5, 5:30-7:30pm
  • Oxbow Blending & Bottling
  • 49 Washington Ave, Portland, ME 04101

The 2015 Creative Toolbox Art + Science Series is a 3-part series exploring how the disciplines of science and art combine and complement each other to foster innovation in business.

Join us for a look at the intersection of art and science in one of the most popular, fastest growing industries in Maine and America: craft beer. The evening begins with Dr. Luci Benedict, Associate Professor of Chemistry at University of Southern Maine, providing a look at the science of fermentation. Next, Rob Tod, founder of Allagash Brewing Company and a leader in innovation in the industry, will facilitate a conversation with a group of Maine brewers – on the fusing of creativity into fermentation and beyond. Each will bring to the table their own unique perspective, providing participants with a diverse look at the manifold levels on which creativity plays a prominent role in the business of beer.
