How Science is Saving Beer



Kristen Kahle earned her Ph.D. in Molecular Pharmacology and Structural Biology from JCBS. She is the Director of Research at Invisible Sentinel, a molecular solutions company that provides microbial diagnostic tools for industries including food safety and beverage quality. She leads the scientific team that developed brewPAL, a rapid molecular test for the detection of beer spoilage organisms. JCBS graduates continue to carve unique career paths for themselves.


Brewing the Perfect Pint: How Science is Saving Beer

Join Jefferson alumni at Barren Hill Brewery to learn about the new tools being used by brewers to detect the bacteria that can ruin beer in production.  Dr. Kristen Kahle, PhD '09, will discuss the diagnostic devices being used to quickly and accurately detect potentially detrimental microorganisms before it's too late.  During the evening, Barren Hill will sample its house brews, including its exclusive Umlaut Fever, inspired by Jefferson's own Dr. Thomas Mutter.

Wednesday November 11, 2015 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at The Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery
