Mosaic State Brewers Collective

Go Far. Go Together.

The Mosaic State Brewers Collective (MSBC) Mentorship Program offers insightful curricula, industry experience, and authentic mentorship to historically underrepresented people.

Representation Matters

Our mentorship program is the result of a purposeful partnership between Metier Brewing and Reuben's Brews. MSBC leverages the knowledge and networks of key industry leaders to develop and open doors for future leaders who are more reflective of the nation’s diversity.

In collaboration with the Consulting and Business Development Center at the University of Washington's Foster School of Business, MSBC provides our participants complimentary access to critical consulting and business management courses.

By providing access and opportunity to our diverse and talented roster of participants, we aim to enrich the culture, the craft, and reach of the brewing community. We actively encourage applications from BIPOC, femme, and queer community members. Go Far. Go Together.

There’s no where else in the country where you can get this level of professional development to fulfill your dreams in the brewing industry. Mosaic State Brewers Collective’s mix of mentoring from the most creative brewers in the US, business education, and hands-on learning will take you to the next level and introduce you to a life-long community of supporters, colleagues, and friends.
