Competing in commercial brewing requires a diverse skill set derived from study of brewing theory as well as hands-on practical skills. To address the need for extensive practical training, the WBA Advanced Applied Brewing Techniques module was created.
This module is designed to give students advanced-level practical skills in every key area of commercial brewing operations. Designed and instructed by the faculty of Doemens Academy in Munich, Germany, this module takes students through over 300 hours of hands-on activities in the production and lab facilities of Doemens Academy. Students produce batches of beer and shepherd them through the entire brewing process while conducting numerous tests to assure the quality and consistency of their beers, all while under the watchful supervision of Doemens instructional team.
This module cannot be taken unless the applicant has completed and passed the WBA International Diploma in Brewing Technology previously, which consists of Modules 1–6.
