If my local community college had a continuing ed homebrew course, I'd jump at the chance to take it.

Or you could go to CSU Fort Collins and get a degree from a state school in brewing science:

Bonus:  You probably get to do internships with the likes of New Belgium, Odell, and Left Hand.

Cool! Finally a college course you can use. Suck it liberal arts majors.

I knew how to drink beer before I got to State.  Although I do recall getting better at it--it took some hard work and dedication sometimes up all night burning the midnight oil--but one day you look back and say.  Damn, I really came out of it with a better understanding of what it takes to be a beer drinker...and to a lesser extent earn a degree.

I built a still in college. Something common to most mechanical engineering departments, although it's very much multidisciplinary. Triple distilled and run through a massive carbon filter, smoother than Skyy. I always thought Skyy tasted like paper.

I thought you went to community college because you were too poor or stupid to get into real college and your parents caught you jerking off around the house a few times.
In essence, you learned how to make beer because you got caught jerking off around the house a few times.

North Carolina has tons of breweries. And their beer is a hell of a lot better than Wisconsin's.

Well, New Belgium is in the process of building a new brewery just down the road from this community college and Sierra Nevada has just opened one across town.  The Asheville area is becoming a nice little craft beer town.

You don't need a fancy degree to learn how to make beer. Just take some spare grains, boil them in a pot of water, strain, and let the water cool at room temperature for a few weeks. Toss in seasonings as desired.

Chris English, the college's dean of applied technology, compares beer and wine production in western North Carolina with Napa Valley, Calif., in the 1970s.

Dream on.

Now that's cool, I hadn't heard they were expanding east.  I wouldn't be surprised, then, if they were somehow involved with this in NC.  I know they prodded CSU:FC and helped get their fermentation sciences thing going.

I'm drinking a Shiva IPA from Asheville Brewing Company right now, so I am getting a kick out of these replies...

Highland is the best known in WNC because they have been around the longest and have a great distributor.  For my money, I prefer Wedge Iron Rail IPA, Altamont Brewery's Pale Ale, and the aforementioned Shiva, all brewed within five miles of the Highland Brewery.

Asheville's ground zero for beers in the last five years.  You can't walk down the street without bumping into a brewer.

People's Porter by Foothills Brewing in Winston Salem is a current obsession.

Is it too early in the week to crack one open?
 
2013-07-08 06:49:55 PM
I almost went to Siebels  http://www.siebelinstitute.com/  mid 90s, but, based on talking to several breweries, it seemed a poor return on investment. Most places were offering only minimum wage, the course was about 8 grand at the time for I think about a  3 week course. I was already doing all grain, decoction mashed high gravity Bocks and Viennas and didnt want to downgrade to min wage, again, so i passed.

There is a Blue Ridge Community College in Weyers Cave, VA.

I went to NC State and have been making beer since I was a freshman.  And so it goes.

The trolls are out in force here. The region works harder at being a beer Mecca than just about anywhere else, and the work is paying off. Best regional beer culture around.

Also, from what I gather from a long ago thread.... Drew's dad lives in Hendersonville.

(Former BRCC instructor, so I'm enjoying this)

Western NC is VERY well known for it's beer.  Asheville is one of the best beer towns in the country.

Wisconsin on the other hand just mass produces carbonated piss.

Luther said I could learn some things from you. I already know how to drink.

All my University had was "The Chemistry of Beer"...
On a side note, if their area is known for apples, and they're brewing, I am hoping they will be learning about cider as well.

Too early in the week? I don't understand that phrase in that context.

Foothills is good -- and it's finally got a foothold on some shelf space near me. Before that, if you didn't want Bud/Coors/Miller, you could get some Yuengling.
