Higher Beer Education


We may never send a team to the Final Four or have a fancy quad...or gymnasium...for streaking, but here at Flying Dog University, our curriculum revolves around beer. 

Our faculty is always looking for new ways to connect our love of beer to the world around us through our elective program. On Thursday, March 24, join us for an elective on Beer & Charcuterie and explore Flying Dog beer paired with artisanal charcuterie, a classic combination that few meat lovers can resist.

We're bringing the experts from Meatcrafters for a class that will teach you how some of the best salamis and sausages are made while drawing parallels to the brewing process. The class will conclude with a guided beer and cured meat pairing. Spots are limited, so register now.

Want more? Join us this spring for our core curriculum, which is a three-week exploration of how beer is made, how we experience beer and how beer interacts with food:
