Thanks!
ET at Purdue? Nice. I was in Computer Science at purdue for 2 years before I realized I hated it. Now I'm a cook for purdue. Haha alot less money but hopefully someday i'll have a brewpub to call my own. PM me sometime if you want to swap some brews.

Wholesale automotive and marine broker,and freelance tattoo artist with a business management degree. Desperately pursuing a degree in brewing science since I was in junior high. The only reason I went to college was to further my chances of getting in to the brewing science program. I've been in the A&M brokers world since birth spanning 4 generations( my great grandpa x2 was ship manufacturer.)but love brewing and want to learn everything there is to know about it. So I can brew all that I can brew!:-)

I dropped out of college 3 times and joined the Army. After 7 years I have a Masters in BS and have somehow scored a wife with a real Masters degree to support my broke ass and all my hobbies.

The Misfits skull makes up for all of that. Punx not dead;-)
If you treat them right they don't care what you do& if you make them happy no matter what your hobby is they support it just to see you happy. So don't be so down on your self obviously your doing something right. Just keep her happy & she'll do the same,that's what it's all about.

IMO I believe brewing is more "apprentice" learned work than a degree, I think it is best taught by brewing and not by book, good beer has been made for hundreds of years, and UCLA has only had a Brewing Science degree for a few years. Not to shoot u down AT ALL but I think there are plenty of books you can get cheap to learn the science and not spend $10K's. On a degree that can be self taught. Even the most successful craft brewers don't have Brewing Science degrees. If you want to open a brewery I would home brew a lot and get a degree in business/economics.

I do agree. There are only two of those programs available so my reasoning was personal knowledge not just of brewing but all of the science behind It also. I've been learning to brew all of my life as a family tradition. The reason of going was not just the degree but the privlage and experience of doing not only something I love but that very few have done, learning from the true guru's of beer. I make very good money doing what I do, and don't need a degree for it but have one in business management. I don't want to open a brewery as a profiting business it is my passion. If that explains what I was trying to say.(I guess if you did open a brewery and didn't profit it would show that no one wants to drink your beer,and all I want to do is create great beers that taste good. If no ones drinking it must not be good:-) )
