The Craft Beverage workshop series organized by Appalachian State University has engaged hundreds of participants representing over 300 North Carolina businesses since November 2010. In collaboration with the Enology Services Lab, the series supports small businesses in craft beverage industries with workshops covering vineyard and hopyard issues, fermentation, product quality assurance, and sensory science. Meetings feature speakers who are either professionals or academic specialists in their field, and are often hosted by NC wineries and breweries. Topics are science-based with practical application for producers.
