Added to this, there’s also an optional hands-on bootcamp which is being offered on-site for an additional $1400 at their state-of-the-art August A Busch III Brewing and Food Science Laboratory. The entire curriculum is the same as the in-person version and can be completed in approximately 18 months for 14,300 USD.

Course Benefits

Upon the course completion, a candidate would be able to evaluate and select raw materials for specific brewing objectives and product qualities. Applying sensory principles and other methods to improve a product along with designing a brewery unit are just some of the benefits.

With industry experts like Lindsay Barr, Charlie Bramforth and Glen Fox taking over the lectures, this Master Brewers Certificate Program provides students with a wealth of knowledge and exploration of art, science and business sides of the brewing industry.
