The American Brewers Guild is the nation’s premier brewing school for the craft brewing industry. Over the years we have earned a strong reputation for providing the brewing industry with the kind of brewer it needs.
We developed the CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program (CBA) to address the need for new brewers to have some practical experience and training on graduation. We then developed the Distance Education version of the CBA to aid students of brewing science in obtaining that all-important qualification while working at their breweries or other jobs.
As technology allows we will continue to develop the Distance Education CBA so that it will continue to be at the forefront of brewing education. Each year two correspondence courses, the Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering and the CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program courses will be offered twice each, in January and June.
In response to demand from the industry we have developed the Brewery In Planning to train those embarking on the project of opening their own brewing company. It rest on the skeleton of the IBS&E with content tailored toward ownership.
Owning our own facility, with its production brewery, allows us to offer new continuing education classes, classes in Quality, Brewing basics, home brewing classes and general beer interest classes are all on the schedule
