Beer Certificate Programs

Interested in expanding your knowledge of Craft Beer? The craft brewing industry provides more than 150,000 jobs in the United States alone and has been rapidly expanding for several years now as the number of breweries worldwide has skyrocketed. For bar and restaurant operators, this means customers now expect different beer choices than they’ve traditionally been given. For customers, enthusiasts, and home hobbyists, it means a broader selection of ingredients to brew beer and expansive flavor profiles to taste and explore.

Cornell University’s certificate programs will provide you with an in-depth understanding of beer styles and their ingredients. You will investigate the characteristics of different malts to determine which is best for your recipe and beer style, learn to taste beers and do a sensory analysis, build a beer menu, explore the properties of hops to determine their impact on beer aroma and flavor, and much more!
