Science at the pub

Thursday, 09 August 2012


What makes a great beer? Edith Cowan University (ECU)’s brewing science lecturer will answer the question this August with Science at the Pub, a free event to celebrate National Science Week.

Held at the Joondalup Campus’ state-of-the-art Pilot Malting and Micro-brewing Facility, guests will get a chance to sample some of ECU’s very own beers and also hear from master brewer Hugh Dunn as he shares the secrets behind a great brew.

Made on Campus, ECU’s beers are recognised nationally and internationally, winning a number of awards including:

  • Silver medal at the 2011 International Beer Challenge for the Belgian Abbey Ale, Degrees Dubbel; and
  • Silver medal at the 2011 International Beer Awards for the Degrees Rauchbier.

“Brewing a great beer takes time, knowledge and the right equipment. This event is a great way to get an insight into the perfect beer and understand the science behind what makes it taste so great!”

Beer samples and food will be provided throughout the event.
