    A laboratory project for instrumental analysis with the theme of quality control for a local microbrewery is described. The analyses of important flavor and aroma compounds can be easily modified to work with a variety of instruments and wet chemical techniques. Learning objectives, an instructor’s manual, project calendar, assignments, and grading rubrics are provided. The instructor’s manual provides a framework for creating a student-centered learning experience, strategies for implementation, TA guidance, and cost estimates.
