January 2016 Classes

Posted by Ron Cotti on Wednesday 2 March 2016 at 11:39 AM

The January 2016 class wrapped up their final weeks recently. CBA students are wrapping up their apprenticeships soon. I’ve selected a couple of students from our last class who were hired at their apprenticeship breweries to tell their story.  No, it’s not a rags to riches thing…more like riches to rags, or at least clean clothes to wet and sweaty and covered in trub. So check them out here and be sure to congratulate them next time you see them.
