Reaction of Graduates
The hands-on nature of the program during our time in Germany was an irreplaceable experience. Not only were we designing recipes and covering all aspects of beer production -from ingredient procurement to packaging-, but on a regular basis it seemed like we were brushing shoulders and interacting with top players in the industry (Ziemann-Holvrieka, Barth Hass,Weyermann, etc.), which to me was incredibly valuable in seeing the workings of the industry. And to top it all off, at the end of the day, you had Munich as your playground.
Doesn't get much better than that for a brewer!

Going through the WBA International Brewing Technology program positioned my career towards success, as well as opening a world of opportunities. It will forever serve me as a beacon of precious and reliable information. Staff and instructors with vast experience and industry knowledge made my learning very seamless and efficient. I feel proud to be up on the wall as an alumni!
Brewer and Consultant
We aim to educate not only for students to be able to get jobs in a brewery, but rather to both instill a deep understanding of science, and also teach students to think in solutions – whether it be problem solving or creative ingenuity. Our different approach is due to step-wise learning from the executive overview course (basic) all the way to the Master Brewer program (advanced).
