The Importance of an Educated Industry: A Panel Discussion and Q&A with SLU's Brewing Science and Operations Program | Saint Louis University - School For Professional Studies @ Venture Café Night: 39N (Langenberg) | St. Louis | Missouri | United States

In 2019 the Saint Louis University School For Professional Studies launched a first-of-its-kind brewing certificate program in partnership with the entire Greater St. Louis brewing community. Taught by local industry professionals with decades of combined experience, SLU’s Brewing Science and Operations program is a hybrid of online teaching and in-person site visits to area breweries, distribution centers, and more. This panel and Q&A will discuss how this partnership and program came together, the challenges and benefits of teaching on an online platform, how to break into the brewing industry, and the critical importance of beer education. Moderating this discussion is Troika Brodsky who serves as both Executive Director of the St. Louis Brewers Heritage Foundation as well as Director of the new SLU Brewing Science and Operations program. Panelists include both faculty and students from this new program including Mitch Turner (SLU Instructor and Sales Director – Craft Beer and Spirits, Major Brands Premium Beverage Distributors), Stephen Hale (SLU Instructor and Founding Brewer, The Saint Louis Brewery – Schlafly Beer), Abbey Spencer (SLU Instructor and Head Brewer, Third Wheel Brewing), Dr. John Witte (SLU Instructor and Director of Beverage Operations, Square One Brewery & Distillery), Jeff Pitts (SLU Instructor and Sr. General Manager, Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Brewery – Retired), John Buerck, Ph.D. (Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, SLU School For Professional Studies), and more!
