RMM: How did you start the Nash Community College Brewery Incubator program?
NCC:NCC thrives on an entrepreneurial spirit. Starting the brewing program supported the hospitality umbrella of programs and students. Though some people claimed that the lack of breweries in our area was reason enough to say no to the BDF program, the College argued that the lack of brewing in eastern NC was exactly why the program should be implemented.

RMM:What’s the single most important thing people need to know about your business?
NCC:The value of an educational credential, certificate or degree, cannot be understated. In business, a credential tells your customers that you are recognized by a third party as someone who knows what they are doing. People cannot practice law, medicine, nursing or education without a credential that validates their knowledge. One cannot authentically call themselves a brewer without a related credential from a recognized institution. NCC provides the education, experience, and credentials needed to do just that.
