University of Wisconsin Student Brings Brewing Experience Home
Friday, July 15, 2016


    VERONA, WI -- Earlier this year, Tyler Cox with a group of fellow students from the University of Wisconsin College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) crafted a new beer which is now available throughout Wisconsin.

    Organized under the UW’s Campus Craft Brewery, student teams were created and each team crafted their own, unique recipe. After the winning recipe was selected by a panel of expert judges, all the students were able to participate in the production of the beer along with the professionals at Wisconsin Brewing Company. As a result of this real-world educational experience, S’Wheat Caroline, an American Wheat Ale, is now available on tap and in 6-pack bottles across Wisconsin.

    Milwaukee area resident, Tyler Cox, was a student in this innovative collaboration which included the UW Madison’s Campus Craft Brewery and Wisconsin Brewing Company. In addition to brewing, students also participated in naming the beer, designing the label, and are now helping to market the product.

    To continue the educational process, Tyler is working with local beer distributor, Beer Capitol Distributing, to help tell this great story and share S’Wheat Caroline with his hometown of Milwaukee. On Tuesday, July 19, Tyler will be riding along with Beer Capitol Distributing visiting accounts and sharing his personal story of this collaborative program.

    In addition to a ride along, also on Tuesday, July 19, Tyler will be at a Meet and Greet at The Harp, 113 E Juneau Ave, Milwaukee beginning at approximately 6pm.

    “Brewing is part of our Wisconsin heritage and this unique partnership will help train our next generation of beer-brewing professionals,” said Carl Nolen, president and CEO of Wisconsin Brewing. “We couldn’t be more proud to be working with the UW on this exclusively Wisconsin collaboration,” Nolen added.
