Booze University: 6 Cool College Classes About Alcohol

Maybe you got an unofficial bachelor’s degree in beer, but some colleges actually offer courses on drinking. Cheers to that. Here, six of the best.

Practical Malting and Brewing

University of California-Davis

For more than 40 years, students have been flocking to the Practical Malting and Brewing course at the University of California-Davis. Every spring, Charles Bamforth—who has taught the class since he arrived at the school in 1999—leads students in the beer brewing process. In teams, they take what they have learned from the course, create their own recipe, and brew a batch of beer to be judged by professional brewers from large and small Northern California companies. And each year, the winning beer wins a mystery prize.
