Celebrate new student-crafted beer “Red Arrow” – April 28

A new beer crafted by UW-Madison students will be recognized at the release of Red Arrow, the 2017 Campus Craft Brewery beer. The event is on Friday, April 28 at 3 p.m. at the Sett in Union South.

The agenda includes remarks by CALS Dean Kate VandenBosch, Professor Jim Steele and Hans Zoerb of Campus Craft Brewery, and others.

The Campus Craft Brewery program, which is in its third year, is the result of a landmark collaboration between UW-Madison and Wisconsin Brewing Company. The endeavor gives students, ages 21 and up, the opportunity to craft a recipe, source ingredients, consult with experts, create a beer and have it judged. The class culminates with all the students taking part in full-scale commercial brewing of the winning beer at Wisconsin Brewing.

Students from the UW-Madison School of Journalism also participated in the creation of the beer’s branding. Red Arrow, the name of this year’s beer, honors the 100thanniversary of WWI and the 32nd Division. The 32nd Division, which is comprised of Wisconsin National Guard volunteers, earned the name Red Arrow from their ability to consistently and successfully pierce enemy lines.
