The Better Beer Society announced yesterday that this year, it will be introducing the next chapter of Better Beer Society University with a handful of courses.

Beer 101 is a nine-week orientation course aimed at educating students on the fundamentals of beer, as well as the industry that creates and supports it. It offers students a “well-rounded base knowledge and deep appreciation for beer” by deconstructing beer’s elements and the brewing process.

The 200 level advanced course offers an in-depth look at specific topics. These are intensive three-week courses. Students enrolling in 200 levels should have an advanced base knowledge of beer and/or have taken the 101 course prior to enrolling.

Current 200 level courses include:

  • 210 Homebrewing
  • 220 Tasting & Palate Development
  • 230: Food & Beer Pairing with Jorge Guzman, Surly Brewing Co.’s executive chef and recent James Beard semi-finalist and Cochon 555 winner.

Better Beer Society is also currently developing a new BBS “Professional Track” offering two very distinctive certifications: the Beer Cuisine Certification Program and Beer Professional Certification Program. Both are designed for the “career-minded individual, equipping them with the expertise needed for seeking a professional career in the hospitality, food and beverage industries.”
