A One-of-a-Kind Program
The Dallas College Brewer program is the only one of its kind in the southern region of the United States. It produces highly qualified employees who meet the demand for trained brewers in the booming craft beer industry in Texas and the region.
The program achieves this through face-to-face, online and hybrid instruction. Specifically, the Journeyman Brewer program directly partners with more than 20 local breweries that provide live learning labs at their facilities.
Since its creation, the Dalls College Brewer program has produced a 98% job placement rate, and it will continue to do so by expanding its partnerships. The pairings of these classes create a pipeline that enables the hobby beer-lover to become a head brewmaster and/or craft beer business owner.
“The Journeyman program is a comprehensive overview of grain to glass from someone who has worked at every conceivable level, including malting, that will prepare you for beginning your new career.””
