East Tennessee State University has joined in partnership with local industry leader Tennessee Hills Brewing and Distilling to offer students innovative, practical, and hands-on training for one of the fastest-growing sectors of the regional economy.
The Brewing and Distillation Studies minor and certificate will provide students with the knowledge and practical skills for success in various career areas in the craft beverage industry. These interdisciplinary programs are built on foundations of scientific thinking, business, marketing, and entrepreneurial principles, and on an understanding of legal, ethical, social, and historical aspects of alcohol consumption and its impact on communities and economies. The programs feature strong partnerships with local businesses and a grounding in the rich history and culture of the Appalachian region. Through classroom work and internship experiences, as well as other experiential learning opportunities, students will learn to apply creativity and scientific knowledge to become well-rounded and responsible practitioners in the craft beverage industry.
Our Brewing & Distilling program can complement any degree. ETSU offers both an undergraduate certificate and minor options. Be a brewer!
