Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College's Craft Beverage Institute has received a grant from Duke Energy to expand its craft beverage program.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports ( the school's Craft Beverage Institute is getting a $195,000 grant that will buy a 7-10-barrel brew house, a canning machine, a distillation system and a micro winery.

Program director Scott Adams says the equipment should be on the Enka campus by fall.

Adams said two dozen students are now in the program, and another two dozen will begin in August. He said some students have traveled to the school from as far as Oregon.

A-B Tech would eventually like to open a tasting facility similar to what's offered by Surry Community College's wine program in Dobson. Brewmaster Jeff Irvin said that would involve a change in state law.
