Certificate in Practical Brewing

3 Week Course

Our 3 week course is ideal for those people who have decided to set up their own micro brewery. It enables students to enhance their knowledge of brewing theory and develop their practical brewing skills.

You will learn about microscopical techniques and how to implement these when creating quality control systems. You will be taken on supervised brewery visits and meet industry specialists.

Our experienced in house team is augmented by carefully selected experts to embrace other important topics including beer tasting, recipe formulation, business start up advice, marketing and brewery design.

The course is fully accredited by ONE Awards and students who are successful in passing the course assessments will be awarded a Brewlab Certificate in Practical Brewing.
