As Washington lawmakers try to find a way to fully fund K-12 public schools for the first time, it’s important they do not sacrifice other valuable programs to get there.

A new degree program is brewing at South Puget Sound Community College.

The state recently endorsed the college’s request to offer a for-credit Craft Brewing and Distilling Program.

“That gives us the green light to move forward,” said Kelly Green, a spokeswoman for the Olympia-based college. “Our anticipation is that in fall 2017, we’ll be able to launch brewing and cider, and fall of 2018 would be distilling.”
