Here’s the Release:

MetroWines is proud to announce that Anita Riley, host of “Brewing UP a Storm” blog and events and Beer Buyer at MetroWines, has received two scholarships and has been named to both The Dean’s List and The President’s List at AB Tech.

Anita studies Brewing, Distillation, and Fermentation at The Craft Beverage Institute of the South East at AB Tech. She holds the title of Certified Beer Server through Cicerone, USA, and is a native of WNC.

“Anita shows amazing promise for Asheville,” said Gina Trippi, co-owner of MetroWines. “Anyone who can juggle being a full time student, a full time single parent and almost a full time employee at a busy retail shop can probably do anything!”

Recently, Anita received The Corman Family Scholarship awarded to an achieving brewing student and The Lavender Fund Scholarship presented to a single parent.

Anita was been named to The Dean’s List for the Spring, Summer and Fall of 2014, an honor that requires a 3.75 GPA, and to The President’s List for Spring 2015, for students with a 4.0 GPA.
