CIA to Add Brewery

The Culinary Institute of America will be partnering with Brooklyn Brewery to add its own small brewery at its Hyde Park campus.

The brewery will be a seven-barrel system. 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 Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and his team will visit on a regular basis and assist CIA faculty in developing curriculum and recipes.

The brewery is targeted to open in summer 2015.
