Interested in Brewing Craft Beer? You’ve Come to the Right Place.
A recent study by the Brewers Guild of Florida on the economic impact of craft beer highlights that Florida is a relative latecomer to the craft beer scene and that we have just seen the beginning of craft beer. Total economic impacts (including direct, indirect and induced effects) were estimated at $301 million in 2012 and $432 million in 2013, with predictions that before long we could see as many as 500 breweries contributing to a total impact upwards of $2.5 billion in the state.
Recognizing this potential, the University of South Florida St. Petersburg College of Arts and Sciences has collaborated with numerous local and national breweries to create a unique on-line course and hands-on training program in the Brewing Arts. Lead sponsors of this program include 3 Daughters Brewing and Great Bay Distributing. The Brewing Arts program will provide participants with the foundational knowledge and hands-on training for a successful career in the fast growing industry of craft brewing. The program is designed for those who range from 1) hobbyists and enthusiasts looking to make their passion into a career to 2) those who wish to work in a brewery, to 3) those who may aspire to open a brewery one day.
The USFSP brewing arts program is an online program that provides participants with the foundational knowledge and hands-on training for a successful career in the fast growing industry of craft brewing. And the best part is, you can complete the program from anywhere on the globe.
