Up to the Bar on College- and Career-Ready
Raising the bar just strikes me as an unfortunate metaphor in such a context: As the industry becomes more competitive, the bar has been raised for those starting a brewery or working for one.
On the other hand, the next time you hear those corporate-politicized educationists prattling on about "raising the bar" on college- and career-ready, you can shout out for a craft beer.
A few months ago, the University of Vermont announced its new Craft Beer Certificate Program.
Note: The program requires students to be 21 years of age or older.
Federal financial and institutional aid for this professional certificate programs is not available, but it is approved for funding through the GI Bill and through the Vermont Department of Labor.
If you doubt that this is a big topic in Vermont, take a look at this map of Vermont breweries. Whether they will benefit from a University imprimatur is open for discussion.
