Siebel Institute of Technology Brings Brewing Courses to Metropolitan State University of Denver

This is a big year for the Siebel Institute of Technology as it celebrates its 150th anniversary. The highly lauded brewing school will bring two of its courses – Brewing Microbiology Course and the WBA Fundamentals of Brewing Technology Course – from Chicago to Denver, Colorado this summer. The School of Hospitality at Metropolitan State University of Denver will host these two courses during the month of July.

The Siebel Institute Brewing Microbiology Course (July 11-21, 2022) offers 9 days of intensive technical theory and hands-on laboratory activity at MSU Denver, marking the return of this important course to the USA for the first time in 20 years. Along with the Microbiology Course, the new 5-day World Brewing Academy (WBA) Fundamentals of Brewing Technology Course (July 18-22, 2022) is perfect for those looking to enter commercial brewing or for those working in the brewing industry who have no prior professional-level brewing education.

“We are excited to be working with the team at the School of Hospitality, MSU Denver in bringing Siebel brewing education closer to the ever-expanding Colorado craft brewing scene,” says John Hannafan, Vice-President of Siebel Institute.

The excitement of these two courses coming to Denver brings a bit of excitement from MSU Denver. “This is such a great opportunity for students not only to learn from Siebel and MSU Denver’s Beer Industry Program, but to experience first-hand Colorado and its extraordinary brewing and beer culture,” stated Eric D. Olson, Ph.D., chair in the School of Hospitality at MSU Denver.
