Get Your Professional Certificate in the Business of Craft Beer
San Diego’s craft beer industry has more than doubled in the past two years, and has earned our town titles such as “America’s Best Beer City,” “Top Beer Town,” and “Top 10 Microbrew Destination.” The growth of the industry has paralleled the growth of our most popular certificate program: the Business of Craft Beer.
The SDSU Craft Beer Program is so popular that courses always fill to capacity, which is why you’ll want to note that registration opens at midnight on August 1.
