Imagine going to college to learn how to make beer? It’s now a reality with a new program being offered by the University of New Hampshire in Durham. The Craft Brewery Startup Workshop is a five-day class that will expose wanna-be beer makers to seasoned, professional brewers who will talk about the inner workings of the business and share some of their experiences getting started. The program promises participants will leave with a better understanding of the craft beer industry, a personalized business plan, and introduction to some contacts in the industry. Tuition for the class is $750 and includes tours of several breweries and access to the New Hampshire Craft Brew Conference on Manchester.
If you’re a fan of iced coffees and beer, then Dunkin Donuts and Harpoon has a special treat for you this month. The two beverage companies have teamed up for “Dunkin Porter Coffee." It’s available in select stores and bars. Boston-based Harpoon said the beer “has a smooth mouthfeel with aromas of espresso and dark chocolate." The beer is 6 percent ABV and a six pack comes in a glass 12 oz. bottle in Dunkin’s orange and pink colors. To find out where you can buy Dunkin’ Porter Coffee, you can go to Harpoon’s beer finder.
