Get A Degree In `Beerology'
Tuesday, March 30, 2010 17:11 GMTPHILADELPHIA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Getting drunk is pretty much a requirement at one Philadelphia school.
The Beer School teaches everything a student needs to learn about beer without ever having to do a single keg stand through extensive courses in brews.
With classes like Beer Exotica: The Greatest Beers You Have Never Heard Of and Beer and Homebrewing, every student is guaranteed a well-rounded degree in beerology.
The school even offers a historical comparison of beer brewing in Old Europe to present America so students can get to know how their brewskis came to be.
Of course, there are also plenty of tastings.
Though beer connoisseurs are known to be arrogant about their knowledge of suds, brewmaster and Senior Instructor Dean Browne says theres nothing wrong with that. In fact, students should keep it up.
He says, Were not trying to break down the snob factor here. Were trying to build it up.
