What you get

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 stepwise learning from the executive overview course (basic) all the way to the Master Brewer program (advanced).

It is your choice how to study at the WBA!

For the theoretical basics:

Intensive web based trainings from your home (or wherever you are) These lessons are always accompanied by experienced brewmasters and teachers available during online sessions and also via email.

Campus based courses taught in small groups.

A mix of both online and campus courses

For the practical orientated sessions:

Intensive practice after theory: the last 5 weeks of our International Diploma in Brewing Technology program and the last 13 weeks of our Master Brewer Program,  you will participate in advanced level practice courses in the Doemens Academy educational training facilities in Munich, one of the great brewing capitals of the world.
