The Fermentation Sciences program is a unique feature of Appalachian State University. Students can get involved in different fermentation related activities on campus as part of course work or one of the research projects. An updated list of events can be found at the Fermentation Club page. The club is part of the Appalachian State University AppSync Organization system.

The goal of the Fermentation Sciences Club is to extend the classroom experience to the greater community at the University. Our events will include guest speakers, hands-on fermentations, tastings, in-major mentoring and practical applications. The club is open to all majors, and acts as an academic, professional and social resource for students.
"I found an interest in Fermentation Sciences from going to the local craft breweries and vineyards back home in New York, I thought it was really cool how something like beer or wine could bring so many people together in a positive way. I have always had an appreciation for science especially chemistry and have enjoyed home brewing as a hobby for a few years so Fermentation Sciences was an ideal program for me." - Niklas Tikkanen, Student Lab Assistant
