When Samantha Bernstein, marketing manager for Brooklyn Brewery, asked bachelor’s students in the CIA’s Art and Science of Brewing class to share their thoughts about their brewing education at the college, the responses were as diverse as they were passionate.

“A lot of us are going to be sommeliers, dining room managers, chefs, so we like to learn about beer, about what sells”…

“I like the holistic approach to learning, the history, how we got to where we are today”…

“I feel like beer is less pretentious than wine, open to anyone to drink.”

It was music to the ears of Bernstein, who was on campus for a presentation to students on marketing craft beers. Brooklyn Brewery has partnered with The Culinary Institute of America to open the CIA Brewery at The Egg, the new dining facility on the college’s New York campus. The brewery is yet another valuable addition to the students’ hands-on experience.
