The difference between a good brewery and a great one lies in the quality and consistency of their products. Understanding the technical issues involved in analyzing and controlling the quality aspects of beer is critical to any growing brewery, and meeting those needs is the goal of the Essential Quality Control course. 

The course presents a full range of topics related to quality control (QC) that will give you the tools needed to produce beers of high quality and consistency. Covering all of the most important aspects of a complete QC program -  sensory evaluation, analytical testing and microbiological testing –the Essential Quality Control course provides an exceptional learning experience and is unlike any other courses available elsewhere.


This course is jointly offered by Siebel Institute and White Labs, and hosted at the White Labs facility in San Diego, California, with instruction provided by some of the most recognized experts in brewing, including Richard Dubé of Siebel Institute and Dr. Chris White of White Labs.

The emphasis in this course is lectures enhanced with lab time, exposing students to the sciences behind the techniques. Over the span of 4-days, students will learn the tools and procedures used worldwide to evaluate beer at every critical phase of production, employing standards designed and tested by organizations such as the ASBC and EBC.


• All students applying for a program, module or course must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age.
• Prior commercial brewing knowledge is not required, but students will benefit from existing knowledge of brewing technology, fermentation and/or related sciences.
