Beverage Arts


Beverage Arts students at Brightwater are prepared to work as sommeliers and mixologists, graduating with certifications in beer, wine, and spirits from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust and Cicerone. But it’s not only about certifications and skills. Beverage Arts students understand that craft beverages start in the ground and learn about the processes that convert raw ingredients into complex beverages.

Beverage Arts students share foundational classes with culinary and pastry students as they begin their journey to understanding the development of flavor. Students will be able to evaluate the flavor and quality of wine, beer, and spirits and understand the components of craft cocktails.

Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared for a variety of careers in the beverage industry.
