RCCC offering craft brewing course

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College

CONCORD —Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is offering a chance to gain knowledge about the craft beer brewing industry.

Starting Monday, April 9, the course will give students a base of knowledge in identifying beer flavors and styles, mastering beer pairing principles, learning the brewing process and beer ingredients, understanding retail beer storage and service issues and appreciating the history of microbrewing. Students will also identify various national certifications available in the craft beer industry, including the four levels of industry-recognized Cicerone Certification.

“We are very excited to be able to offer this craft brewing course in collaboration with Commoners Brewing Company in Concord,” said Sherie Neely, program manager of training services at Rowan-Cabarrus. “Craft beer brewing has become the hot new industry in the NHC. Come and learn about the business of craft beer brewing and create your own beer!”

Upon completion of the six-week class, students will be prepared to sit for the Level One Cicerone certification, Cicerone Certified Beer Server.

“The craft brewing class is part of the Agripreneur Academy and Network, a new venture at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College designed to be a single educational resource for new and established agriculture-related businesses with a Sustainable Agriculture Series being offered at Lomax Incubator Farm,” said Neely. “The Agripreneur Network is intended to provide a networking framework to link agribusiness owners of all kinds, local restauranteurs and the community.”

The course will run Mondays beginning April 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at Commoners Brewing Company in Concord.

Those interested should register as soon as possible, as there is a lot of interest and limited slots available.
