Entry level

Master of Beer Styles and Evaluation course

Entry level Continuing Education Sensory and Beer Styles
Learn how to formulate and perfect beer styles aimed at winning competitions, and expand your knowledge of beer styles with the Master of Beer Styles and Evaluation course.

Description

The Master of Beer Styles and Evaluation course is designed to give professional brewers the skills they need to formulate, brew, and evaluate gold-medal beer recipes.

The Master of Beer Styles and Evaluation is composed of 2 Siebel Institute courses: the Sensory Analysis for Flavor Production and Control course and the Master of Beer Styles course. Students may choose to take each of the courses separately or together here, resulting in a substantial savings over the individual course tuitions if taken separately.

While students do not need a brewing background to attend this course, we ask that those attending should have a basic understanding of how beer is made in order to get the most from this course.

Those with either professional brewing experience or formal education in the equivalence of our WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology will find this course highly valuable in formulating beer styles for competitions such as the World Beer Cup® and Great American Beer Festival®, as well as for expanding their knowledge of beer styles
