Beer Education

Craft beer has become an integral part of restaurant service. BREW-ed works hard to make sure Asheville's servers and bartenders are able to "talk beer" with the 1 million visitors who come to Asheville each year because of our beer scene. Through our education programs, students learn how to boost beer sales while lowering costs. Let us help make beer more profitable for your bar or restaurant.
