Top Shelf Education

Top Shelf

​​​​​The adult beverage industry continues to grow and distinguish itself as an economic driver in New Jersey. Cumberland’s “Top Shelf Education” program is intended to support the needs of consumers, entrepreneurs, employers and those seeking employment in this expanding and lucrative industry.

Rowan College of South Jersey - Cumberland Campus has designed the program to evolve with the industry. Partnering with local companies—beginning with Cedar Rose Vineyards in Rosenhayn—to provide education programs, personal enrichment and training, the program will expand into the brewing and distillery industries in the future.
