My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Last night I got to attend my first meeting of a Robeson County NC beer club. We are very proud of our name “Barley Literate”. It is the brain child of @DrewT_Richards and @gracemoore27 plus several other individuals.
Barley Literate is a great group of people all at various stages of their appreciation of beer. I mentioned at the meeting that in the state of North Carolina you can get a college degree in Fermentation Science at Appalachian State University. Photo of campus below.
To get that degree you study wine and brewing and that involves understanding systems design and engineering along with an understanding of the social and cultural implications of food and beverage production.
For those serious home brewers App State’s Fermentation Sciences program offers a 5-day brewing short courses each summer intended for those working within the brewing industry or the advanced home brewer.
I have a number of friends who are Appalachian State grads and hope this post is something of interest to them. @jonathankappler and NC Senator Danny Britt here you go.
