Student Class Project Wins Medal at Craft Beer Competition

Class Project Stay Sharp Saison, a beer created by students in the CIA’s Art and Science of Brewing course, has been awarded a silver medal in the Taste NY Governor’s Cup Craft Beer Competition. Competing against 15 other beers, it took second place in the Belgian Farmhouse category. The beer—along with the other competition winners—was subsequently featured at The New York State Fair in Syracuse.

The lab portion of the bachelor’s-level Art and Science of Brewing is held at The Brewery at the CIA, where students learn about the ingredients, equipment, and techniques required to produce ales and lagers. The class helps future food professionals think differently about beer, elevating its status as a fine beverage on a level with wine.

“We’re thrilled to win a silver medal for our Class Project Stay Sharp Saison,” said Hutch Kugeman, head brewer at The Brewery at the CIA. “Breweries across New York are crafting amazing beer and the fact that we won for a beer created with help from the students is especially gratifying.” 

The competition was hosted by the Raise A Glass Foundation
