Science Made Beerable Inc. is offering one scholarship to someone in the brewing or related industry, to further their education in brewing science.

Science Made Beerable Inc. endeavors to share the fascinating world of beer science with beer lovers.

As a part of our annual ExBEERimental Science event, this year the participating brewers created a science-inspired beer; a Cold IPA “Pils of Wisdom”, kindly sponsored by HPA, Voyager Craft Malt and Bluestone Yeast. A portion of the profits from this beer will go towards forming a scholarship that enables someone to further their education in brewing science with an effort to support diversity in the industry.

So if you are a brewer wanting to further your technical knowledge, someone who works in the beer industry wanting to further your understanding of the science of brewing, or perhaps would like to begin your brewing career or anything in between, and you feel this opportunity will support your career aspirations, please apply!
