Ivy Tech Northeast To Offer IvyLiving Community Classes

Beginning fall 2016, Ivy Tech Community College Northeast will offer IvyLiving classes, non-credit enrichment classes geared toward the community. The first IvyLiving course will be Homebrewing 101.

To determine which classes to offer, Aja Michael-Keller, the College’s director of Events, Enrichment, and Conferencing, reviewed similar programs in the region and found areas that could be expanded upon.

“As the number of small and independent craft brewers increases across the country, more and more people are becoming interested in homebrewing,” Michael-Keller says. “IvyLiving is a great way to learn the craft from an expert in the field, and we even provide all your materials.”

Homebrewing 101 will meet from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 24 and Oct. 8 at the CookSpring Shared Kitchen at The Summit, 1025 W. Rudisill Blvd. To learn more and sign up for classes, visit
