World Brewing Academy

English-language education across two continents

English-language brewing technology training – offered under the brand “World Brewing Academy” (WBA), a result of the long-standing partnership between Doemens  Academy and Chicago’s renowned Siebel Institute – has been recognized in the international brewing industry since 2001.

The courses, of varying duration and diverse objectives, cover a wide range of  brewing technology  topics starting with the Concise Course in Brewing Technology, held only at the Siebel Institute. Further courses of the WBA are offered and conducted at both campus locations in Munich and Chicago.

  • WBA International Diploma in Brewing Technology Program (7 weeks in Chicago and 5 weeks in Gräfelfing)
    The next course takes place from September 19th to December 9th 2022
  • WBA Master Brewer Program (20 weeks, building on the Diploma Course)
    The next course takes place from February 7th to July 29th 2022

The recipe for the success of this unique training initiative includes the fact that intensive transfer of knowledge in theory and practice, which takes place at two locations, brings together participants from all over the world. This promotes a lively exchange of ideas and allows our students to see the bigger picture!

Furthermore, interested parties may take web-based courses, conducted exclusively via the Siebel Institute: Executive Overview of the Brewing Process, Concise Course in Brewing Technology  and  Associate Program.

A detailed breakdown of training content and further information is published in our information brochure. Of course, we are also happy to answer personal queries.
