The World Brewing Academy has worked with some of Europe’s largest & best-known breweries and brewing-industry suppliers to create the WBA European Brewing Study Tour. Over the span of two weeks, students will travel throughout Europe to get behind-the-scenes tours of breweries, equipment manufacturers, and product suppliers. English-language instructional sessions will be conducted throughout this program by our World Brewing Academy instructional team, preparing students to get the most out of their visits.

Those participating in this program will travel with the students of the 12-week WBA Diploma program, creating a diverse, dynamic, and fun learning experience. The tour will travel through Germany and several other European countries, allowing students to experience a wide range of international brewing techniques and technologies.

Students will take in the beauty of thousands of kilometers of European countryside, staying at affordable, high quality hotels in regions selected for their brewing culture. Whether you are taking the WBA European Brewing Study Tour as part of the WBA International Diploma in Brewing Technology program or as an individual course, you will have the brewing experience of a lifetime.
