Welcome back beer students!

I hope you are as pleased to read this letter as I am to write it.

On behalf of the Better Beer Society University and after careful review of your credentials from "Beer School", we feel you would make a great addition to our campus and Better Beer Society is proud to welcome you to BBSU!

Fall semester starts Wednesday Sept. 19th and will be held at Republic. I would like to introduce you to your new host and moderator, Principal Jake Keeler.

Principal Keeler is the Chairperson of the American Homebrewers Association Governing Committee, and an online craft beer/homebrew personality.

Though there will be beer in every class, our goal at BBSU is not simply to just drink beer, but to educate you on all aspects of the beer community, giving you the tools and knowledge to help you become completely well rounded and informed. Here at BBSU we believe, that "an educated beer drinker is a better beer drinker."  

So, in addition to all of the great beers you will get to sample and brewers you'll get to meet, we'll also bring in special guests such as hop growers & maltsters, learn more about the distribution networks, MN laws, brewpubs vs. breweries, etc...

Oh yeah, and did I mention field trips? More info on this later.

We're offering a break on tuition for those who sign up early for the full Fall semester. Sign up quickly, class is limited to capacity of 125 students. Class start time will be 6pm, and will be 1 hour long. There is only one session.    

Enrollment/tuition cost is $40 for the entire semester (13 weeks). This will also include your supplies (notebook, beer samples, pint glass, how-to-brew DVD, and catalog) from our sponsor "Northern Brewer".

You may reserve your place in class by completing this form, and we do ask that you inform us of your intent to attend BBSU no later than September 12th.

We're extremely excited to have you with us this semester!  

Best wishes, and though we tried to get you room & board, we hope you'll understand that Republic has a strict NO live-in policy.


Rob Shellman
Dean / Founder of BBS & BBSU
