The MNCBG invites the people and businesses of Minnesota to join us in supporting a diverse and inclusive craft beer industry in Minnesota. The MNCBG and our partners are establishing “Diversity In Brewing” scholarships at the Dakota County Technical College for their Brewing and Beer Steward Technology Certificate Program.

The goal of these scholarships is twofold:

  • To actively contribute to a brewing industry that reflects the diversity of our great state, and
  • To support the educational goals of people who are currently under-represented in our industry by eliminating financial barriers.

Apply for the program and scholarship here.

“Diversity In Brewing” scholarships will be open to women, people of color, LGBTQ and non-binary people, and the disabled community.

While we are asking members and individuals to donate, the Guild will also donate July Shop proceeds to the scholarship fund. NOTE: The MNCBG is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit, but donations to our organization are NOT tax-deductible.
