Brooklyn Brewery, one of America’s top craft beer makers, has joined with The Culinary Institut
e of America (CIA) to develop a small brewery on the college’s Hyde Park, NY campus. The Brooklyn Brewery at the CIA is expected to open to the public in summer 2015.
The operations at the brewery will be integrated into the curriculum of the college’s degree programs. Juniors and seniors pursuing a concentration in Advanced Wine, Beverage, and Hospitality will staff the brewery and learn about fermentation and brewing techniques as well as the business aspects of running a small food and beverage operation. Brooklyn Brewery’s famed Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and his team will visit the Hyde Park campus on a regular basis and assist CIA faculty in developing curriculum and recipes.
