Beer Essentials Certificate

Credential Earned: 

In recent years, the craft beer industry has rapidly expanded, and the number of breweries worldwide has skyrocketed. For bar and restaurant operators, this means customers now expect different beer choices than they’ve traditionally been given. For customers, enthusiasts, and home hobbyists, it means a broader selection of ingredients to brew beer and expansive flavor profiles to taste and explore.

This certificate program provides the end-to-end understanding of beer production, tasting, and selection needed to establish an effective beer program in a commercial setting or simply increase your knowledge, understanding, and ability to appreciate beer. From ingredients and process to sensory analysis, to serving, training, and sales, you will gain meaningful insight into today’s evolving beer industry from leading experts.

Purchase of supplies, such as beer malt, is required to enjoy the highly experiential nature of this course.
