Brewing Industry Field Study

The Supply Chain Craft Brewery Field Study is a winter term program designed specifically for Supply Chain Management students interested in the Supply Chain processes associated with the rapidly evolving U.S. brewing industry. The program, developed and led by Prof. Rocky Newman, explores industry leaders and suppliers in three major US brewery centers: the rocky mountain area (Denver, Golden, and Fort Collins CO), the northwest (Portland and Bend OR, Seattle WA.) and the growing eastern corridor (Ashville NC). The focus of the field study starts with classroom instruction on the history and basic brewing of beer, beer styles, and geographic influences on those styles. Students are also prepped on the business of brewing and the industry wide supply chain that encompasses it. Prior to leaving for the experiential aspect of the field study, students self-select into teams exploring more specific aspects of the brewing supply chain.
