Anheuser-Busch Foundation Gift


The Anheuser-Busch Foundation donated $250,000 to CSU’s Fermentation Science and Technology program last April to fund the renovation of academic space and a hands-on lab at CSU.

“We work hard to bring adults the beers they love and look forward to helping educate the next great generation of brewmasters,” said Kevin Fahrenkrog, Anheuser-Busch Fort Collins brewery general manager.

It was a continuation of existing support from the brewery; experts from Anheuser-Busch had already visited CSU’s fermentation science and technology classes to share their knowledge with students.

“It’s an honor to contribute to the program’s development and help empower the future of brewing and fermenting,” said Anheuser-Busch senior brewmaster Katie Rippel.

“We’re so appreciative of Anheuser-Busch’s involvement, and we look forward to the continued success of this partnership for years to come,” said Jeff McCubbin,
dean of the College of Health and Human Sciences.

In the past decade, the Anheuser-Busch Foundation has also supported brewing science and education through an endowment to the University of California-Davis and by funding a food science laboratory building on the UC Davis campus.
