About Our Program

CWU Craft Brewing began in 2009 with a partnership between the College of the Sciences and the office of Continuing Education. The goal was to create a program that would provide skilled and educated professionals in the growing brewing industry. Fall of 2015 a Bachelor of Science degree in craft brewing was created and launched. The interdisciplinary degree was approved on April 20, 2015 by the CWU Board of Trustees.  It remains the only Bachelor of Science degree in Craft Brewing in Washington State.


CWU Craft Brewing addresses the industry's need for highly trained and educated professionals in brewing and brewing related industries.


CWU Craft Brewing bridges the gap between higher education and industry and we are dedicated to teaching the Art & Science of Brewing. Our students will master not just the craft, but the science, business, and technology behind it.
