Earlier this month, OnSight assisted Anheuser-Busch and the Anheuser-Busch Foundation in hosting a press conference to announce a $250,000 gift to Colorado State University’s Fermentation Science and Technology program in Fort Collins. This program, launched in the fall of 2013, is the first of its kind in the region, and only third in the nation. Anheuser-Busch has worked to foster a partnership with the department since its development with in-classroom visits, an inside-look at the brewery, and now this sizable donation.
Despite some uncooperative weather, CSU students, faculty, regional public figures and Anheuser-Busch employees joined us for the conference at the A-B Brewery in Fort Collins and enjoyed snacks and beers after the check presentation.
Here’s a roundup of key coverage from the event:
