Mount St. Joseph University announced it has partnered with West Side Brewing to create Centenni-Ale, a limited-edition beer commemorating the University’s Centennial Celebration.
Dr. Tim Lawson and Dr. Andy Rasmussen, instructors of the University’s Beer Brewing and Appreciation Course (BRW 101), crafted the recipe for Centenni-Ale. Lawson describes the beer as “the perfect marriage of light Belgian witbier and hoppy American IPA.”
Lawson and Rasmussen have been teaching the course for five years. They are award-winning homebrewers and certified beer judges. Lawson serves as chair of the University’s psychology department, and Rasmussen is chair of the biology department.
Centenni-Ale is available for pre-order online at Toast Tab. West Side Brewing will host a preview party at 3304 Harrison Ave. on September 13 from 4-7p.m. Centenni-Ale will be sold by the can at the brewery while supplies last. Pre-orders will be available for pick up at the event.
West Side Brewing co-owner Kurtis Remmel, a Mount St. Joseph University alumnus, says the partnership is a first of its kind event for the brewery. As a former student of Lawson and Rasmussen, he says the collaboration also has a special meaning for him. “To share in University’s centennial event is personal for me because it brings the brewery’s story full circle,” said Remmel.
