West Virginia University Associate Professor Sven Verlinden wants students to learn to “respect” and “savor” beer.
Verlinden’s new class PLSC 293: “Barley to Beer” will not only teach the fundamentals of brewing, food pairing and the history of beer, but it will also focus on health, wellness and safe consumption.
“I want students to understand how to enjoy it responsibly,” Verlinden said.
Orginally from Belgium, Verlinden knows a lot about the art form of beer brewing. As a home brewer himself, he is passionate about the process and the finished product.
