The Brewing Club is a student organization within the EUS that focuses on the fermentation of various beverages and food. This club is meant to provide an interesting and enjoyable outlet for engineering students who want to explore process engineering and biologics manufacturing through the production of fermented beverages and foods, such as kombucha and ginger beer. Brewing club aims to provide members with opportunities to apply classroom knowledge, research methods, and practical learning to plan and record the steps for brewing drinks with certain desired characteristics. Detailed notes on production will be kept and organized by the club, and every batch will be tested for consistency and repeatability of results.

History

The idea behind Brewing Club started in the Fall 2019 semester when Jacques Carmichael and Matthew Smrke collaborated on their shared interests for the brewing of fermented beverages. Together they worked on creating a strong constitution and relationships with external partners leading to the Brewing Club to officially obtain EUS club status on January 24th, 2020. Since then, the Brewing Club has been working to create events and projects with their first event, a DIY Ginger Beer Workshop, being a great success. Stay tuned as they continue to work on their beer brewing project and other collaborations around campus!
