College Offers Degree in Beer

(Out of Control Pint Glass now on sale at the NeatoShop)

No, it’s not a beer tasting or beer appreciation degree. Maybe there’s a class for that, but this degree from Blue Ridge Community College in North Carolina will instead teach people how to make alcoholic beverages at a professional level. The college anticipates that the state government will approve of its associate of applied science degree in brewing, distillation and fermenting before the program launches this fall.

The college hopes to train people to work in the region’s growing beer and wine industry. The program trains students in mechatronics and the practical skills of fermenting wine, brewing beer and distilling liquor.
