Craft Beer Appreciation Program at Sonoma State University

Craft Beer Appreciation Program at Sonoma State University

It’s not quite a degree, but Sonoma State University’s School of Extended Education is now offering a Craft Beer Appreciation Certificate Program for students.

Not quite as glib as it sounds, the program focuses on a thorough understanding of the beer industry with a focus on craft brews; the brewing process, beer “appreciation” (read tasting) and statewide business opportunities. Beer expert Jay Brooks, a co-founder of SF Beer Week, teaches the class over 12 weeks, beginning Feb. 18.

The cost of the course is $1495, details online at ssuexed.com. Must be 21 to participate.
