Chamber Presents The Morning Buzz Featuring Ron Shea of R. Shea Brewing on January 17

1/7/2020
 
Greater Akron—The Morning Buzz is a monthly speaker breakfast series which aims to connect small- and medium-sized businesses by facilitating the exchange of ideas and strategies for business growth and success.
 
On Friday, January 17, 2020, join us to hear Ron Shea, Owner of R. Shea Brewing, present “The Science and Art of Growing a Brewery Business.”  Shea has been brewing since his 21st birthday after receiving a present of an “ale pale” from his wife and an ‘extract’ recipe.  Over 19 years later, along with receiving a BS in Biology, a BA in Chemistry and “almost-an-MS” in Polymer Chemistry, Shea has developed some great recipes with a focus on process and efficiency.
 
Shea worked several years in R&D for a global specialty chemical company where he specialized in organic synthesis of thiocarbonates, carbamates, xanthates and the synthesis of narrow molecular weight distributed polymers.  His final project was un-mothballing a high temperature, high-pressure polymerization reactor.  Ironically, this is how Shea brews beer now. You will find nearly 20 years of biology and chemistry knowledge and application infused in R. Shea’s beers, not to mention the artistry of flavors that goes into the product.
