The Brew Crew
Brewhaus Dog Bones is a project based learning model used in young adult vocational programming for individuals with disabilities through several local school districts in the Cincinnati region. Students with disabilities have the option to defer their high school diploma until age 22. During this additional period of time, school districts are required to provide vocational training and work-study opportunities based on a student’s individual needs and work preferences. Students have community placements as well as their own in- house model, Brewhaus Dog Bones, to help teach work skills, understand a start to finish business model, promote communication and independence at all levels.
Brewhaus Dog Bones works with area microbreweries to provide the core ingredient of our treats, spent brewery grains, and then our Brewcrew turns them into tasty dog treats! The students make, bake, package, label, weigh and sell the treats within their school districts, at participating microbrewery taprooms and other community vendors, including special community events/markets. It’s a win-win for everyone!
