Hop College: Sensory Expedition

The taps are on, the beer is pouring, and class is back in session! Learn all about how to fine tune your senses the Great Lakes way at Hop College: Sensory Expedition. Join our Beer Education crew as they help you understand what it takes to serve and drink a great beer and what issues might arise when things don’t go as planned.

Students who enroll in Hop College: Sensory Expedition will head to the classroom where we will help you tap into a deeper understanding of craft beer with a guided tasting, plus a lesson on building a vocabulary to describe what you smell and taste.

Students who complete Sensory Expedition will leave with a special Hop College branded snifter glass (pictured below), and official beer nerd bragging rights.

Graduate at the bottom of your glass at Hop College, where our taproom is your classroom!
