"Kalamazoo to be home to nation's first sustainable brewing degree."

I can only hope that Purdue University is next. The Brewers of Indiana Guild has been working with Purdue and Indiana state agriculture officials to inaugurate programs that might some day lead this direction.

Them I'll be freed to incorporate the donation of a wealthy benefactor and start the Beer Writing School at Indiana University Southeast, my alma mater in New Albany.

Kalamazoo to be home to nation's first sustainable brewing degree, by Cheryl Roland (Western Michigan University)

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—The Kalamazoo area closed out its 2015 Beer Week January celebration with news that the nation's first higher ed programs in sustainable brewing are being launched at Kalamazoo Valley Community College and Western Michigan University.

The brewing programs, which will be offered starting in fall 2015, were developed by the two schools working in close coordination with the industry. The resulting "two-plus-two" program in sustainable craft brewing will offer students the opportunity to earn a certificate or associate degree at KVCC, then move on to a Bachelor of Science degree that marries industry art and science with WMU's national reputation in sustainability.
