To help supply the workforce for a growing industry, Southwestern Community College has secured the necessary equipment to start a craft brewing program.
Class starts Oct. 23 at SCC’s Jackson Campus and will meet from 5-10 p.m. on Thursdays through Dec. 18. Teaching the course will be Taylor Rogers, a brewer at Frog Level Brewing in Waynesville.
Course content will focus on understanding the brewing process and beer ingredients. Students will also gain a base knowledge of beer history, the beer industry, ingredient identification and purpose, steps of the brewing process and an introduction to the styles of beer. Those who successfully complete the program will be eligible for employment in the industry.
