UNM adds Business of Craft Brewing class to summer session

It’s time to study up on beer! Well, the business side, at least. But you need that to get these!

Back amid all the chaos of ABQ Beer Week, our friend Angelo Orona sent us an email asking if we could help get the word out about the class he will be teaching at the University of New Mexico this summer, The Business of Craft Brewing. It begins this Thursday and runs through July 27 and runs from 6 to 9 p.m. every Thursday.

The class is open to non-UNM students, but take note, it costs $995. The course description goes as follows:

Do you have a passion for craft beer? The industry is growing like a weed, and breweries with business tools have a significant advantage over their competition. If you currently own (or dream about owning) a brewery, you owe it to yourself to understand the business of craft brewing.

This program will help brewers, entrepreneurs, and connoisseurs understand the industry’s history and trends. Over 8 weeks, you’ll learn about brewing beers, packaging porters, and selling stouts. When you finish the program, you’ll walk away with the ability to differentiate both your brew and your business.

The course schedule goes like this:

  • Introduction: Brewing in NM
  • Beer History, Ingredients, and Process
  • Processing & Packaging
  • Local Brewery Field Trip
  • Beer Science & Quality Control
  • Sales and Marketing Craft Beer
  • Local Brewery Field Trip
  • Wrapping Up & Setting Goals

This is the type of course for someone who wants to open his/her own brewery, or improve an existing brewery.
