2023-2024 Undergraduate General Catalog

Brewing and Fermentation

The Brewing and Fermentation minor prepares students to oversee the technical process of fermentation or to manage brewing businesses. In the applied brewing track, students learn the science behind fermentation. Brew masters and industrial fermenters use this science to produce beer, wine, hard cider, and ethanol. In the brewing management track, students apply business principles to the craft brewing industry. Both tracks include local internships at places such as breweries, wineries, or industrial fermenters.
