Better Beer Society University - Spring Semester
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

Better Beer Society is pleased to announce that we are accepting enrollment for our upcoming spring semester of BBSU (Better Beer Society University).

Open enrollment starts on Feb 6th. Class will begin on March 6th, and the semester will run for 12 weeks. We're pleased to announce that campus will once again be located at Republic, and this semester will consist of two sessions to account for busy schedules (first session is at 6pm, and a second session will be held at 7:30p). Both will be one-hour long courses, and guest(s) will be the same.

Please choose your preferred session.

BBSU is an educational beer school for both the beer enthusiast, as well as the novice. Our goal is to educate students on all aspects of the beer industry, from production, retail and distributing, to the agricultural side of hop farmers and maltsters. We teach you how to explore your palate, cook with beer and create pairings.

Students are treated to some very exclusive and rare beers during certain classes (i.e. - Cantillon Fou'Foune & aged Surly Darkness). There are also special field trips and access to local breweries before they open to the general public.

Tuition cost for BBSU spring semester is $75 (which equates to $6 / class, or roughly the cost of a beer).

We encourage new students to enroll early for their preferred time slot, as space is extremely limited, and last semester sold out very quickly.

This semester promises to be even better as we have some very special guests lined up, known both locally, as well as on a national level.  

Reserve your seat now, and we hope to see you this semester!

Dean / Founder of BBS & BBSU
