Crafting Beer: The Science of Brewing

Featured Speaker: Florian Kuplent, Co-Founder and Brewmaster, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company

There's more to beer than hops and yeast. Join Florian Kuplent, Co-Founder and Brewmaster of Urban Chestnut Brewing Co., as he discusses the science behind craft beers and Beer Divergency, a unique philosophy that puts a modern spin on traditional brewing, while paying homage to the old.

Presented in conjunction with the Missouri History Museum exhibition, American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, on display at the Museum through August 17, 2014.

The Missouri History Museum also has a Meetup group, so be sure to ask people if they are with Nerdy Girls.

      I was so impressed with him! Also, I had no idea how many degrees you could get in beer-making :-)

    Hi all - looking forward to tomorrow night's event! The meeting time is at 6:30 pm but the program begins at 7 pm. FYI, this should be a popular event so please try to arrive by 6:45 so we can get seats together. I will be working at the Academy of Science St. Louis's table handing out materials. Can't wait to see everyone!

    Is the speaker slated for the whole time or will there also be time to see the exhibition?

      He speaks from 7-8:30 pm. I'm not sure if the exhibition is open at that time of night though.
