Default Brew school...

So I'm finishing up my biology degree at the University of Nevada and my long-ish term goal is to get certified and open a brewery. However, I am at a bit of a crossroads as to my path towards brewmaster. My choices here are UC Davis or online through the American Brewers Guild. I was just wondering if anybody has any thoughts as to which would be more beneficial or which would give me a better shot a getting a job

UC Davis:
PROS
- in-depth hands-on action and face-to-face lecturing
- an actual IBD Diploma
- shorter (18-weeks)
- job placement / assistance
CONS
- in a different city
- expen$ive ($14k)

American Brewers Guild:
PROS
- online, so i can do it in my undies (that's what she said)
- cheaper (~ $8k)
- be placed with a mentor, one of whom is at the Great Basin Brewery in Reno
- job placement / assistance
CONS
- doesn't seem as impressive
- less hands-on


I don't know... I could use some advice

If yo were to hire someone for your business, which one would you hire based on their credentials?

How much brewing did you learn by reading?

And have you really looked into the pros and cons of brewing for a living?

Hate answering guestions with questions, but the truth of the matter is your answer is really within in you as long as you can be honest with yourself.

In the mean time........ Have a home brew!!!!
