04.06.2015 // The Art + Science of Craft Beer @ Brooklyn Brewery

On April 6th, ArtLab proudly partnered with Brooklyn Brewery to host an evening exploring the magic + mystery behind crafting the perfect brew. With Brooklyn Brewmaster Garret Oliver—a former filmmaker—we took a deep dive into a drink that helped establish civilization itself, and then sustained it for thousands of years: beer. Today’s craft brewing is a perfect blend of scientific stringency and pure creative energy, where art is a constant inspiration.

Garrett gave ArtLabbers a unique behind-the-scenes look at how Brooklyn Brewery transforms humble ingredients and ornery microbes into a vast array of delicious flavors. For a quick recap of the evening’s insights, enjoy the above video courtesy of New Learning Times—a series about innovative learning opportunities produced by EdLab at Columbia University’s Teachers College.
