WSET Level 1 Award in Beer

Course Description;

The WSET Level 1 Award in Beer is a beginner-level introduction to beer intended for people who have little or no prior knowledge. It is designed to provide a sound but simple introduction and is suitable for those starting a career in the industry or pursuing an interest in beer.

Successful candidates will be able to list and state the purpose of the main ingredients and production steps used to make beer, state the key characteristics of specified beer styles, and know the key principles involved in successful beer and food pairing and storage and service. They will consequently be able to answer customer queries and provide recommendations for beer service.

Upon successful completion, you will receive a WSET certificate and lapel pin.
