Continuing Education

Karl Brown

“I’m really looking forward to teaching this MOOC once again. Before going to graduate school for my PhD in Modern European History, I worked in brewpubs in Japan and Greece, and this class gives me the chance to combine my formal training as a historian with my past experience as a professional brewer. It’s my goal that everyone who takes this class comes away from it with both a broad understanding of beer in history—from prehistoric times to Prohibition, and from colonial times to modern-day corporate mergers—and the basic knowledge necessary to brew beer, wine, mead, or any other fermented beverage.”
