The Siebel Institute Master of Beer Styles & Evaluation program is designed to give professional brewers the skills they need to formulate, brew, and evaluate gold-medal beer recipes.
The Master of Beer Styles & Evaluation program is composed of two Siebel Institute courses:
Students can take each of the courses separately. When taken together, the tuition is a substantial savings over the individual course tuitions. Students completing the program will be issued a Master of Beer Styles & Evaluation certificate.
While students do not need a brewing background to attend this course, we ask that those attending 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 training in the equivalent of our two-week WBA Concise course will find this course highly valuable in formulating and perfecting beer for competitions such as the World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival, as well as for expanding their selection of brewing styles.
