CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - In a story May 24 about a certificate program in craft brewing, The Associated Press misidentified two people. Levi Duncan is the lead brewer at Champion Brewing Company in Charlottesville, not the owner. Hunter Smith is the brewery’s owner and head brewer.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Community college offering certificates to brewing students; courses taught by local brewers

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Piedmont Virginia Community College has started offering students the opportunity to earn a certificate in the growing industry of craft brewing.

The Daily Progress reports (https://bit.ly/1cUN3C6) the Charlottesville school has been offering classes on craft brewing for six years, but this is the first year students can earn a certificate in the field.

Levi Duncan and Hunter Smith, two of the school’s first students to take the classes, now teach the majority of the courses and run Champion Brewing Company in Charlottesville. Smith owns the three-year-old brewery and is head brewer, while Duncan is the lead brewer.

Smith says the certificate program will helped students decide whether they should make the leap into professional brewing.
