As part of its 150th anniversary celebration, Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago is pleased to announce that it is bringing two of its brewing-related courses to Colorado this summer, hosted at the School of Hospitality at Metropolitan State University of Denver.

The Siebel Institute Brewing Microbiology Course (July 11-21, 2022) offers 9 days of intensive technical theory and hands-on laboratory activity at MSU Denver, marking the return of this important course to the USA for the first time in 20 years. Along with the Microbiology Course, the new 5-day World Brewing Academy (WBA) Fundamentals of Brewing Technology Course (July 18-22, 2022) is perfect for those looking to enter commercial brewing or for those working in the brewing industry who have no prior professional-level brewing education.

“We are excited to be working with the team at the School of Hospitality, MSU Denver in bringing Siebel brewing education closer to the ever-expanding Colorado craft brewing scene,” says John Hannafan, Vice-President of Siebel Institute.

Eric D. Olson, Ph.D., chair in the School of Hospitality at MSU Denver added, “This is such a great opportunity for students not only to learn from Siebel and MSU Denver’s Beer Industry Program, but to experience first-hand Colorado and its extraordinary brewing and beer culture.”
