I believe there are brewing schools in the States, but I don't know where they are. A lot of brewers start as chemistry majors. Give Google a shot.

Find a local brewery & ask. Just about every brewer I've talked to started by cleaning up & doing heavy lifting.

However, if you don't think science is involved in brewing, plan on a big shock. After the first batch, it's all science.

On a side note, I have a friend who is going to attempt at becoming a pro brewer and he is getting his degree in biology.

Brewing is definitely art and science. You can make good beer by winging it but you can't be consistent without knowing the whys.
