University of Vermont’s Business of Craft Beer Certificate
Our Program serves:
- Future brewery owners who dream about opening their own craft brewery
- Beer industry staff who seek an opportunity to develop new skills and expand their career opportunities
Brewery owners looking to expand their brewery but know their team must be highly skilled to take them to the next level
- Career changers who want to join the craft beer industry in sales, marketing, or business operations
As the craft beer industry becomes increasingly competitive, our faculty and instructors know the key to successfully launching and running a brewery is to build from a solid business and operational foundation. We’ve designed the program to provide essential industry knowledge in production, finance, sales, social media promotion, marketing, branding, and distribution. Participants may also elect to take individual courses without enrolling in the full certificate program.
