Meet Johnny: Brewing Science Alumnus

In the Brewing Science Program, students learn everything about beer making – from food safety to microbiology all the way to developing and marketing a final product. Students work with beer aficionados in the region to gain hands-on experiences. Johnny said that what he liked most about HACC were the teachers and brewmasters, who were “very knowledgeable and gave us first-hand experience.”

Johnny said, “As part of my internship at Moo-Duck Brewery in Elizabethtown, Mike Brubaker, owner/head brewmaster, had me come up with a recipe for my own beer and then brew it. It was such a great experience!”
