Craft Beer Connoisseur Camp

Here’s your chance to learn from industry experts in one of the finest destinations on earth, and the U.S. Capital of Craft Beer — San Diego, California. Now in its second year, Craft Beer Connoisseur Camp gives craft beer aficionados around the world the opportunity to experience a nine-day version of SDSU’s popular Business of Craft Beer program. Last year’s inaugural camp drew students throughout the United States, as well as Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, and Australia.

All courses were developed with input from the instructors and advisory board members of the Professional Certificate program — a who’s who of local craft-beer industry superstars — to ensure the most relevant training. Through hands-on learning and tasting, take your craft beer career to the next level.
