SVC launches Craft Brewing Academy

Jun 1st, 2016 | Category: News

MOUNT VERNON – Skagit Valley College celebrated the grand opening of its new Craft Brewing Facility in Burlington on Tuesday, May 24.  The 40-credit program launched May 2 provides an overview of the craft brewery/distillery business, teaching students about the beermaking process and business information. This is the first program of its kind for community and technical colleges in Washington State. SVC administrators cited partnerships with brewing and agriculture industries in Skagit County, and the Port of Skagit, as the reason for its successful launch. Program tuition is roughly $4,200; all students must be at least 21. During the grand opening, staff unveiled an ale called the SVC Cardinal Red Beer, named for the school’s mascot.
