Cincinnati State designs Ohio's first-ever degree in beer brewing science

The BREW 100 class working with MadTree brewers to remove the spent grain from Window Sill.

Two years ago, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College began offering craft beer classes. It expanded the curriculum in 2016, and is now offering a two-year Associate of Applied Science in Brewing degree.

Cincinnati State is the first school in Ohio to offer a degree in beer brewing science.

The program is designed to help students find jobs as head or assistant brewers. The majority of brewers are self-taught home brewers who have a passion for craft beer — they then take the leap and open their own breweries. Much of the coursework is based off of information from local brewers.

One of the classes teams up with a local brewery to create a class beer, which is then brewed by the participating brewery and tapped for the class to try.
