CSUSM & Craft

CSUSM enjoys a special relationship with Craft Beer. Stone Brewing is nearby and grew alongside the university. Numerous alumni have started breweries in the region. The university offers its EngiBeering™ program, which trains students to brew craft beer at scale, and to create and run a brewery. In addition, the university has a registered archive, called BrewChive™. The CSUSM Library has begun to collect and digitize historical documents and special pieces. While the collection will focus on the evolution of San Diego’s New Brew Wave, circa 1987-present, the archive will also feature signature collections, like the history of women in San Diego’s craft brew industry.
