Why register?

For several years, the craft beer market has been growing considerably. Nowadays, many people want to switch back to a job that brings more sense to their daily lives, to a job that they are passionate about.

Becoming a craft brewer is first and foremost:

  • learn and discover a fast-growing profession,
  • learn to develop your creativity while having fun,
  • learn to develop your own recipes,
  • learn to work the chemistry of brewing,
  • learn how to manage your stocks of raw materials and finished products.

The aim of the course is to give you all the necessary keys and know-how, both theoretical and practical, to gain skills and set up your own project as a brewer.

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • mastering the aspects related to the ingredients, the manufacturing process and the hygiene control associated with it, as well as the quality of the beer,
  • manage the production process of beer in a microbrewery,
  • define the operational action plan to launch your project.

During the training, you will have the opportunity to learn how to brew alongside our brewers, to visit our facilities (and even brew there!) and to taste our craft beers!

The programme

The training will take place in our brewery for two and a half days (twice a month) and will be taught mainly by our brewers.

Jour 1 (8h):

  • Introduction to beer: definition, styles, history, beer in Belgium, etc.
  • Raw materials: water, malt, hops, yeast, spices & fruits, etc.
  • Brewing: the brewing steps.
  • Fermenting.
  • Recipe development and beer tasting.

Day 2 (8h)

Let's start with the real thing! You will brew the recipe you developed the day before on our 100L pico brewery.

Day 3 (4h):

On this (half) day, you will be conditioning the brew made 3 weeks earlier by the previous group. Don't worry, the next group will do the same with your beer, which you will be able to pick up on site once it is conditioned too!
