Foundation in Brewing

Brewing and Packaging for Professionals in the Industry

Revised Foundation in Brewing Coming Soon!

In the meantime, the existing Foundation in Brewing will not reopen, so there will be no May 2022 exam.

We are in the final stages of completing the changes to our Foundation in Brewing. The new online learning material features videos and animations of the brewing process along with interviews with leading brewers and other brewing industry professionals.
The Foundation in Brewing defines beer and beer styles and provides a detailed overview of the raw materials used to make them. Each step of the brewing process from raw material intake to packaging is explained in clear and simple terms with numerous illustrations and interactive learning tools.
The Foundation in Brewing is specially designed for future brewing professionals with little or no prior brewing knowledge. It is an excellent introduction to how beer is made and packaged, designed to help you in the early stages of your brewing career.
This qualification will also benefit those supplying raw materials or technical services to the brewing industry. The knowledge gained from attaining this qualification will enable you to better understand the needs of brewing professionals and to speak their language.

We are aiming to launch the new Foundation in Brewing in the second half of 2022.

We will let you know when it is available to book. 

What Can I Do in the Meantime?

If this timescale doesn’t suit you and depending on the stage of your career, your professional goals, or technical knowledge, you could take our General Certificate in Brewing, the most recognised technical brewing qualification in the world.

If you are working in a support role in the brewing industry, hospitality or you are a beer lover, take a look to our first on-demand online beer course Essentials in Brewing. It includes interactive and multimedia learning material that will help you learn the basic of brewing.
