Everyone knows the value of a good education. Now, courtesy of the folks at Beer Academy Australia, you can get a qualification you can really get some use out of.
The Beer Academy is part of the international Institute of Brewing and Distilling, an educational charity dedicated to training professional brewers and distillers. 2012 has seen the Academy arrive in Australia with the aim of helping to teach Australians how to understand, appreciate and enjoy good beer.
Run by local beer experts with a wide array of recognised industry experience, the academy is being run in several main centres with courses to suit any level of knowledge and interest. Courses range from 90 minute tastings to half-day workshops, through to two-day advanced courses and specialised Beer Sommelier courses.
Whether you’re an absolute beginner, thinking about a career in beer or already in the beer trade and looking to gain a bit more knowledge, the Beer Academy events are a relaxed and unpretentious way to have a bit of fun and discover the many delights of beer.
Held at The Lord Nelson Hotel on the 2nd of July, How to Judge Beer is a three-and-a-half hour Beer Academy training course designed to help professionals, enthusiasts and beginners understand how to assess and judge the quality and style of a beer.
For those wishing to pursue beer judging in competitions, this course will help in preparing you for the processes and standards required, while for the novice it will provide an informative way to enhance the experience and enjoyment of tasting beer.
Your expert guide for this class will be Neal Cameron, brewer at The Australian Brewery and experienced beer judge.
