Further information

Students are responsible for all aspects of arranging their accommodations during their education. While we do not have dorms available in any of our host cities, various hotels, hostels and furnished apartments in our area offer special rates. As one of the world’s top tourist destination cities, Chicago has an amazing range of accommodations to choose from.

One of the most important choices visitors must make is the neighborhood in which they will stay. Our location in the West Loop lies on the edge of downtown Chicago, so hotels within minutes’ walk to our location are plentiful. For those attending Siebel Institute longer than one week, the areas to the north of the downtown offer lower priced accommodations compared to downtown. The most popular neighborhoods among our students are Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Logan Square, Bucktown and Wrigleyville, due to the amount of bars, restaurants, shopping and music venues to attend.

You can request a current list of favored accommodations by contacting Cady Sanchez by email at

Students can also choose to find accommodations using their own resources such as internet-based sources such as Airbnb and VRBO. These accommodation services are best when choosing accommodations for long-term classes lasting more than one week. The map shown here indicates suggested neighborhoods chosen for proximity to Siebel Institute. These neighborhoods generally offer public transportation options, a wide selection of bars and restaurants, and they are among the safest areas in Chicago.

Over our illustrious history, Siebel Institute has remained in Chicago where we have proudly served the international brewing industry since 1872. The current Siebel Institute facility is located on the edge of Chicago’s downtown core, surrounded by high-tech businesses, upscale high-rise apartment complexes, and next to the sprawling campus of the University of Illinois Chicago.

Our facility is compact yet well-appointed, with features that include:

  • A large main classroom and a mid-sized secondary classroom that also functions as a breakout meeting room. Our moderate classroom sizes help to facilitate interaction between students and instructors during their time attending Siebel Institute and World Brewing Academy courses, making for a dynamic learning environment.
  • A pilot brewery designed for conducting research and recipe development for breweries and brewing-industry suppliers. Designed and manufactured by DME, the Siebel pilot brewing system allows for highly accurate process control and record-keeping, which is a hallmark of our contract brewing services.
  • The Beer Stube, which acts as the center of student activity during class breaks and at the end of a school day. The Beer Stube is a Siebel Institute campus tradition, playing host to thousands of brewers throughout our school history including some of the most famous names in brewing. It is where students gather to enjoy their lunch, experience samples of beer from our brewery or from breweries around the world, and share in their educational adventure while at our school.

Chicago: America's Beer City

When you step outside of the Siebel Institute facility in Chicago, you will find yourself in one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Located in the city’s West Loop / Greektown district, our campus is on the western edge of the downtown core. The school is surrounded by bars and restaurants ranging from convenient and affordable casual eateries to some of the finest dining locations you can experience in the nation.

With excellent public transportation options, our Siebel Institute guests can discover our city and region quickly and safely. We are only a minute’s walk from major bus routes and the famous “L” elevated train system. Whether you are arriving by car, train, or air, our location is easy to reach. When you leave class at the end of the day, you can shop to your heart’s content on nearby State Street and the “Magnificent Mile” on Michigan Avenue. Sports fans can travel to any of our major stadiums with ease via bus or train. As one of the live music capitals of America, you can catch up-and-coming acts or famous bands in stadium performances practically every night of the week.

Your brewing-related education doesn’t only happen within our classroom walls. We have over a dozen breweries within a short distance from the school, with around 200 breweries in Chicago and the surrounding area. With “beer bars” and breweries large and small serving practically every style of beer available, Chicago is truly “America’s Beer City”, giving Siebel students an unforgettable experience in Midwest hospitality and beer culture.
