This course work is designed to train anyone to be employable in the Brewing and/or the Distilling industries. Strong classroom work, explaining the theories of brewing and distilling, will set the tone for practical brew house and distillery hands-on experience. We have our own Brewing Pilot System  to brew as many batches as possible. We will also visit other local breweries and distilleries for lectures and hands-on work. All classes are taught by experts in their field, professional brewers, and distillers. There is no other Brewing and Distilling training in the South that compares to our proven method and industry networking that results in jobs after graduation.
