The 2-week Doemens Beer Sommelier course is being offer in English for the first time at the Siebel Institute in Chicago. The Doemens Beer Sommelier course is the most extensive course of its kind.

The most extensive beer sommelier course in the world.

In 2012, Siebel Institute of Technology and our World Brewing Academy partner Doemens Academy of Munich, Germany are pleased to introduce a course at our Chicago Siebel Institute campus that is already setting the standard for beer service worldwide.

Since 2004 the 2-week Doemens Beer Sommelier has provided instruction and certification to hundreds of servers, brewers and beer experts in Europe and South America, and now this in-depth course is available in English for the first time. The goal of the Doemens Beer Sommelier course is to impart knowledge regarding beer on a level that enables the certified sommelier to advise customers of breweries, distributors, retailers and restaurants & bars on the production of beer, dominant characteristics of beer styles, how to select the right beer for pairing with the dish of their choice and the positive health benefits of moderate beer consumption. Beer sommeliers will also learn responsibilities in maintaining quality of the beer served to the guest and its perfect presentation, and students will learn to create beer menus, advise cooks & staff on beer meals and organize beer purchases.

This course is completed with an evaluation of papers regarding the creation of a beer meal and a beer menu, with a practical sensory test to detect and describe different beer varieties and categories as also sensory beer defects, an oral exam in the beer presentation sector in gastronomy and two written exams after the first education phase and at the end of the course. On successful completion of this course students will be granted the title of Doemens Bier Sommelier, which also makes them eligible for participation in the annual Doemens Bier Sommelier World Championship.
