Did you know that there is no Brewing School in the Carolinas. Or, for that matter, the Southeast?
The Skull Coast Brewing Company, Inc., is looking to change that. After the sheer number of resumes that we received from homebrewers interested in following their dreams and one day becoming either a Brewmaster or owning their own brewery, we decided to help them get the experience they need.
So, the Skull Coast Brewing Company is going to become a "working lab" for homebrewers looking to make the leap from the garage to the commercial brewing environment. Through a combination of course work and real life brewing experience, our students will learn everything they need to begin brewing in some of the best breweries in the country -- located right here in the Southeast.
While the program and fees are still be worked out, students at our "working lab" can study the brewing process while still keeping their day jobs. Our Weekend schedule will give our students the flexibility they need to continue their studies, but also afford them the opportunity to experience the production work environment in a very real sense. They will be brewing, fermenting, transferring, conditioning, kegging, canning and getting ready for transport real beer for the market.
Lastly, students (as a class) will be able to brew their own "Class Beer" for distribution with Skull Coast distributors to get a real sense of what the public thinks of their efforts.
