ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) -- The perfect courses for plenty of college students, crafting beer.

Asheville-Buncombe Community College plans to offer a series of classes to support the area's beverage industry.

The Asheville Citizen Times reported the school is seeking state approval to create the Craft Beverage Institute of the Southeast.

The program would prepare students for the area's winery, brewery and distillery industries.

School president Hank Dunn says the mission of the community college is to find a local need and meet it.

The school plans to start the program with two dozen students next fall. The school already offers a certificate on the beer business. A course called "Beeronomics" has the longest waiting list of any continuing education class.

The Asheville area will have 10 microbreweries in operation next month.
