Lauren is the Wood Cellar Manager, Blender and the Specialty Brand Manager at New Belgium Brewing Company. She held the title of Sensory Staff Specialist from 1998-2012. Lauren focused primarily on sensory science, where she developed the sensory program from a basic production check to its present world-class program.
The Flavor of Colorado Craft
Time: 5:45 p.m.
You have a long history with flavor, and Colorado has a long relationship with beer. Take your knowledge of both to the next level with Dr. Nicole Garneau, curator at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Dive into the science of experiencing a craft beer the way you were meant to. Along the way take home a few historical gems that will make you Colorado proud, even if you don’t call the “Napa of Craft Beer” home.
Comedy by The Fine Gentleman’s Club
The Fine Gentleman’s Club started when Chris Charpentier, Nathan Lund, Sam Tallent, and Bobby Crane got into a bidding war at the yacht store. When none of the men backed down, ever, it was mutually agreed that each one was a Finer Gentleman than the next.
