Craft Brewing - MINOR

Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.

The College of Culinary Arts offers the Craft Brewing minor, an intensive, concise program designed to give students pursuing any degree the knowledge and skills to successfully enter the craft brewing industry. Students learn advanced brewing theory and the technical skills needed to develop and implement new recipes. Students also demonstrate advanced sensory and laboratory analysis, process management, sterile packaging, regulatory compliance, and retail and wholesale sales.
