2017 YP Social and Beer Brewing Winners [Photos]

More than 200 young chemical engineers from around the world met up for the Young Professionals (YP) social at Lumber Exchange, an event center just a few blocks away from the Hilton.

This was a record turnout for the event, which is just one of many organized by the Young Professionals Committee (YPC), an AIChE entity that works to increase participation among young professionals in Institute activities. It serves as an intermediary between students and local sections and creates national technical and social programming for AIChE conferences. You can learn more about YPC at http://www.aiche.org/ypc

During the event, winners of the first-ever AIChE Beer Brewing Competion were announced. Present in all photos are Beer Brewing Competition chair Brandon Hochstrasser and me.
