We teach with you, not at you.  Our on-site Workshop concept is designed to provide relevant and practical information to today’s brewers in an engaging and interactive teaching format. Our current workshops focus on the brewing basics essential for all brewers. We offer quality instruction in a concise but collaborative atmosphere.

WHO —— You don’t need a chemistry or microbiology degree to take these workshops!  We will teach you the “why’s” along with the “how’s” using plain and understandable language by building on each concept from the ground up.

WHY —— Work at a brewery, have read the books, but want to ask questions?  Maybe you’ve never had the time to attend one of the extended courses available.  Are you starting a brewery or are new to the industry? Are you an allied supplier who needs to be able to talk with your customers on their level?  Perhaps you have been in brewing for awhile and are looking for a refresher course or new ideas.

We welcome one and all; everyone has something to contribute and everyone will find something of value to take away.

“You were great Karl, everyone is just so excited. It really was an excellent course. We are already thinking of how and when we can have you return.”  Deborah Carey,  New Glarus Brewing Company
