Ivory Tower Science

Our mission is to support education and research in fermentation sciences. Ivory Tower hosts the annual High Country Beer Fest, one of the premier events of the High Country, and produces small-batch, craft beverages with local businesses to raise revenue and awareness of the craft and provide educational and training opportunities for students of the craft.

Revenues from sales and fund-raising efforts are used to support student research opportunities, purchase analytical equipment and supplies, and provide other needed support for the Appalachian State Fermentation Sciences program. These efforts are targeted at advancing and sharing scientific and production knowledge and supporting technological advancements in the field.
