The Nov. 10 panel features Nick VanCourt '04, co-founder and head brewer of Barrel + Beam; Andy Langlois '95, co-founder and brewsician of Blackrocks Brewery; and Jake Shea '08, lead brewer of Ore Dock Brewing Company. They will chat about the brewing industry, what sets their breweries apart, and how their education at NMU has helped them in their endeavors. Kylie Bunting ‘11, co-founder of Barley's Angels U.P., the women's craft beer education and appreciation group, will moderate the event and share audience questions live with the panelists.

Back by popular demand, NMU Dining Executive Chef Alden Griffus CCC '10, will host a holiday cooking segment on Dec. 15. Along with NMU Catering Manager Derek Estes '19, Griffus will showcase holiday favorites from around the world, highlighting recipes rooted in various traditions. Participants will receive the recipes ahead of time. Dianne Stone '10, NMU events manager, will moderate the event and share audience questions live with the chefs. Register here.
