Cal Poly Pomona brewery offering hands-on classes

POMONA, Calif. (KABC) -- Instead of tapping kegs, college students, over the age of 21, will be able to learn how to make their own brew and put it on tap at Cal Poly Pomona's brewery-restaurant, Innovation Brew Works.

The university hopes microbreweries in the area will tap into their talent pool once students become certified brew masters.

"If this is an educational facility, I would like to have everyone be able to come in and try a different style of beer," said head brewer Koby Harris. "I wanted to do a nice spectrum of beer, color, flavors so you can see what truly is out there."

The idea had been brewing for a year and a half. With a $7,000 investment, partially from private donations, the brewery is now up and running.
