Beer Breaking Bad: Chemistry & Sensory of Off Flavors

  • Rising Tide Brewing Company 103 Fox St Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Have you ever dreamed of being a part of the quality control group at a brewery? Ever wondered what sort of flavors quality control experts are looking for when sampling beers? Just interested in learning more about beer? If so, this event will be the perfect chance to spend an afternoon learning about what makes bad beer ‘bad’, and what makes great beer great, and some of the science behind it all.

Join us for the second Maine Beer School class and come prepared to sip your way to more beer knowledge! Highlighting the most common off-notes and flavors that can be found in beer, join Rising Tide Brewing Co’s Director of Quality Control, Haley Campbell and a small group for this sensory training workshop. Follow up the class with a little “quality control” of your own, enjoying a complimentary Rising Tide beer fresh from the tap.

Haley Campbell joined Rising Tide as the Director of Quality Control in 2014.  Prior to this, she worked as a laboratory technician and production assistant at Sebago Brewing Company. She graduated from Bates College in 2011 with a degree in environmental chemistry and completed the American Brewer’s Guild Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering course in 2013. This year, Haley Campbell has been profiled on as one of four Women Shaping the Brewing of Beer and by Maine Public Broadcasting Network as one of the Women Driving Growth in Maine’s Craft Beer Industry. This April, she will be presenting a seminar on how to develop quality control and laboratory programs within small breweries at the 2015 Craft Brewer’s Conference in Portland, Oregon.
