The WBA Master Brewer program, the flagship educational offering of the World Brewing Academy, provides graduates with a level of knowledge and experience that prepares them for a full range of brewing-related roles such as head brewer, brewing supervisor, department manager, brewery owner, or any of the most sought-after positions within the brewing industry. Since its introduction in 2010 by Doemens Academy and the Siebel Institute, the WBA Master Brewer program has helped hundreds of brewers from around the globe build thriving careers in brewing.
The scope of this full-time international 20-week brewing program is both broad and demanding. The WBA Master Brewer program is comprised of segments divided into modules, with each module specializing in a particular area of brewing technology. This is truly an international program, with students spending six weeks in Chicago at Siebel Institute and the balance of their time in Munich at Doemens Academy, making for the educational experience of a lifetime.
The content addresses issues across the spectrum of brewing practice from an international perspective, providing students with an educational experience not offered by any other brewing school. Designed and presented by some of the most knowledgeable and experienced brewmasters and subject matter experts in brewing, our goal is to maximize student comprehension of even the most challenging topics. Extensive practical instruction during the European segments of the program ensures that students can see the application of their science and theory instruction in real-world situations.

Along with the extensive knowledge gained in brewing theory and practice, students will have the brewing cultural experience of a lifetime. Chicago and Munich are world brewing capitals and centers of entertainment, sports and nightlife. Students will also experience the 2-week WBA European Brewing Study Tour, which takes participants on behind-the-scenes tours of breweries and industry suppliers to enhance their understanding of brewery operations and technology applications.
The cost of tuition includes a roundtrip airfare (Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Chicago, U.S.A., to Munich Franz Joseph Strauss International Airport, and back to Chicago) for students taking the full, continuous program. Students are responsible for their own room and board in both Chicago and Munich, and these cities offer a huge selection of great accommodations to choose from.
