The Brewery at the Culinary Institute of America
CIA’s brewery is primarily a classroom where bachelor’s-level students learn about the ingredients, equipment, and techniques required to produce ales and lagers.

The class helps future food professionals think differently about beer, elevating its status as a fine beverage on a level with wine.
