Default UC Davis Brewing

An article from today's LA times with some info on the UC Davis brewing program, both undergrad and extension. Amazingly, partially funded by AB!

I wish that there were more online options available when it came to brewing programs. The only online one still requires a short residency at a participating brewery.

Even if I never brewed professionally I would use my military tuition benefits and GI Bill to pay for brewing school if I could do it via the web.

Are you talking about the Brewers Guild? I thought that was just a week in either CA or VT depending on which session, then you did an apprenticeship at a brewery at your home base?

Amazingly? I'm sure a lot of grads go to AB and Bamforth used to work for them I believe(?)....

I have a friend taking his final exams for the program this week I think, unless he took them last week. I'd like to go someday maybe, once I'm out of debt perhaps.

The way it reads to me is that you have to do a five week apprenticeship at a participating brewery. The closest for me would be Elysian in Seattle. Wouldn't be a big deal, but I really don't think I'm going to convince the US Navy to give me 5 weeks off to attend brewing school.

Siebel has an online program, and doesn't require an internship.

I go to UC davis and am enrolled in the intro to brewery class for this coming fall. Sooo excited! That outside program looks really cool though, I'll have to ask my teacher about it.
