After our core topics, and before you start the advanced courses, you will be placed in a brewery near you for a 3-week internship where you will turn concepts learned into practice.
We also take several field trips to locations such as Tampa when the experience will aid in your growth as a future brewer.

“I just placed first with the saison I made and also placed first in best of show in the coconut cup and can say that I wouldn't have done it without your class.”
"Don't think about it, Just take it.
It’s worth it."
“The course is harder than you expect but will build the foundation of what you need to know to run a brewery.”
"An excellent program to learn and understand the key aspects of the brewing science and brewing process. Clear explanations and practical examples oriented to an industrial environment. Highly recommended."
"Understanding what goes on molecularly in yeast and how to maintain the health of these organisms is something that will go a long way for us. We also particularly enjoyed learning how to set up a micro lab - we hadn't even considered cell count before, and now we cannot think of a scenario without it."
There is nothing we love more than taking a really good brewer, and giving them the technical brewing science that springboards them into becoming a great brewer.
Not only do our students make consistent beer they are proud of....
increase their earning potential
