Food Wine and Beer Fermentation Minor

Program Description

Food, Wine, and Beer Fermentation is an exciting new minor in the department. Students will take courses at a partner brewery, Common Bond Brewers. Fermentation is a biological process that requires baseline knowledge of microbiology and chemistry. Additionally to be successful as a brewer, a student will need a background in marketing and sales. The minor consists of three four-hour biology courses and two three-hours courses with our partners in Kinesiology. Students must be 21 to finish the Fermentation minor.
