University Gets $5 Million For Beer Lab Anheuser-Busch Donates To Program Posted: 10:59 a.m. EDT August 2, 2002 DAVIS, Calif. -- Beer is coming to the University of California at Davis in a big way. But in this case, it doesn't mean it's a party school, it's a brewing school. The Anheuser-Busch Foundation is donating $5 million to the university to help build a new brewing lab. The gift will allow UC Davis to double the number of students in the undergraduate and graduate brewing programs. The school even has an Anheuser-Busch endowed professor of malting and brewing sciences. But there's one catch to majoring in brewskis. If you aren't of legal age, you can't sample the final exam.
