SPOKANE, Wash. – No-Li Brewhouse is partnering with Eastern Washington University to launch the first-ever EWU Craft Beer Professional Certificate. 

The 15-credit program will be available this fall and aims to create opportunities for students and community members who want to pursue careers in the craft beer industry. 

The idea for the certificate program came when No-Li Owner John Bryant spoke to one of Senior Lecturer Chris Cindric’s classes. It was further developed over pints at Mountain Lakes Brewing Company with local brewery owner Dave Basaraba. 

It’s a significant opportunity for students in this region because there are so many positions that are available within craft beer,” said Cindric, who will oversee the program. “In addition to serving budding craft beer professionals, the program is expected to attract people simply wanting to learn about the ‘craft.’”

No-Li recently made a financial gift to the university to launch the certificate program.
