The Advanced Brewing Theory Program (ABT) gives students a complete understanding of the technical issues in professional brewing, whether craft or industrial. With content designed around the syllabus of the Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD), UK, our course materials address critical topics in brewing technology, giving students the knowledge they need to improve their products, processes, and profits.
The Advanced Brewing Theory (ABT) Program consists of three modules. Students may take any of these modules as a separate unit, electing to complete the program at a later date.
Throughout the duration of this intensive program, students are supervised by the instructional staff of the World Brewing Academy, drawing on the talents of some of the most knowledgeable scientists, technologists, and brewmasters in the world. Student progress is actively monitored throughout the program, and students can access instructors via email and chat sessions throughout the duration of the module.
