UCSD Extension Panel Discussion: Is Beer In Your Career?
Tomme and peers talk beer & careers!
“Is Beer in Your Career?”
What are the career opportunities in San Diego’s burgeoning brewing industry? Job seekers will learn the answers from a panel of experts who will converse about why San Diego has become such a nationally renowned region for craft beer production and where the professional brewing industry is headed. The panel discussion is being captured for broadcast by UCTV Career Channel as part of the opening of the San Diego History Center exhibition Bottled & Kegged: San Diego’s Craft Brew Culture, which explores the ebb and flow of beer production in the San Diego region. The exhibit features many hands-on interactive elements that help explain: the brewing process, how San Diego County brewers achieve such expansive flavor profiles, and the science behind matching beers with food.
