In a very educational NCBeerBuzz interview we tour the Fermentation Sciences facilities at Appalachian State University in Boone. Rusty Kuhfeld is the Lab Coordinator, Fermentation Sciences, and Dr. Brett Taubman is an associate professor of chemistry. The Fermentation Sciences program provides students with hands-on educational and research opportunities in the development, production, and analysis of a marketable product. Ivory Tower, Inc. is a private, non-profit directed by Dr. Taubman and Dr. Seth Cohen, Director of the Fermentation Sciences Program, with a mission to support and enhance research and education in fermentation sciences. Ivory Tower generates products for sale under the label Ivory Tower Brewery. All revenues generated from the sales of these products are used to support research and education in fermentation sciences.
