Offered fully online, our courses provide participants with the essential business skills needed to be successful in today’s craft beer industry.

There’s much discussion today about the increasingly competitive nature of the craft beer industry. We believe the key to successfully launching and running a brewery today is to develop a strong business foundation. Our program provides essential industry knowledge in production, finance, sales, social media promotion, marketing, branding, and distribution.

Participants may also elect to take individual courses without enrolling in the full certificate program. See our program curriculum for details.
