Kathinka Engineering and Kathinka Labs is proud to be a sponsor of the new state-of-the-art teaching brewery at Colorado State University. The 264-gallon brewing system at the Lory Student Center pub is the largest housed at any four-year university in the country. It can produce about 17 kegs per batch.

“The teaching pilot brewery at the Lory Student Center Ramskeller is a great example of the collaborative spirit of both Colorado as well as the craft brewing industry. Many parties, both breweries and suppliers, offered time, funds and equipment to create this brewery.” said Kathinka Owner and Process Engineer, Floris Delée, who helped design the brewery. “It shows that this diversity is not a limitation rather a strength to create a wonderful real time brewing operation. We can be proud of the brewing facility as well of it’s capabilities but more so of how it came together, through innovative, collaborative work, that is the true Colorado pioneer spirit.”

The facility features a brewhouse donated by Molson Coors. The contribution was shepherded by CSU alumna Jeannie Miller, who retired as the company's vice president of global technical governance and innovation after more than three decades with the Denver-based brewing corporation.
