Brewing - effective Fall 2016
The Brewing Certificate of Achievement will teach the science of craft brewing. The program is designed to be taken as
paired classes. The first pair is Fundamentals of Brewing and Brewing Analysis where students will learn about the
brewing process and discover the impact of different ingredients through the creation of pilot scale beers. The second
pair of classes is Brewery Operations and Technology and Applied Brewing Science where students will learn about and
work with commercial brewery equipment to create many different styles of beer. This certificate is appropriate for
those wanting to hone their home brewing skills or start a new career in the craft brewing business.
Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- Describe the raw materials used in brewing, and their sources, and demonstrate their impact
on finished beer through small batch brewing.
- Apply knowledge of brewery systems and equipment to produce beer on a commercial scale.
- Evaluate beer color, aroma, and flavor, and identify defects.
