Brew U at CIA

A Beer, Food, and Education Festival

Saturday, April 20, 2024 | 2–5 p.m. (VIP 1–5 p.m.)

We are excited to bring back the annual Brew U festival on Saturday, April 20, 2024, at The Egg in the Student Commons at CIA’s Hyde Park, NY campus. Brew U is an exciting beer festival that will combine sampling from top breweries—including CIA’s brewery—with incredible food from CIA and fun, educational seminars for beer and culinary enthusiasts.

Come tour the brewery, learn about the college’s Art and Science of Brewing course, and meet CIA Head Brewer Hutch Kugeman and other New York State brewers and beer experts, all while sampling beers and ciders. You’ll also enjoy dishes perfectly paired with beer and prepared by CIA chefs.
