As a U.S. citizen, I can say that in the U.S.A., we pride ourselves heavily on our ability to produce quality beer. Living in the U.S. state where Coors Beer was founded, I can see a cultural impact as a result of local beer. I’ve seen the beer culture and how it impacts my life on a daily basis.
College students love to drink beer here. Adults love to kick back with a nice brew. Even grandma and grandpa like to gather around a fire pit and crack a cold one.
After recently digging deeper into the history behind fermented beverages from around the world, it became evident to me that beer, as a global phenomenon, is addressed differently in different cultures — not just in my own culture. Each region started the fermentation process in their own way, correlating with the available resources to develop their signature brew.
The popularity of brewing has not only become a popular hobby, it has also become a career option in the U.S.A.
This degree at CSU teaches students, like graduate Cole Goslin, how to brew beer and apply these skills to a future in the brewing industry.
“As long as I can remember, even as a little kid I have been around this industry,” said Goslin.
This is not only the case in the U.S.A., but all over the world. Different countries and different cultures have refined their own brew to fit their taste. Who would’ve known such a popular beverage could be executed in so many different ways?
