What Can I Expect

Go online to learn about craft beer? Now that’s the sort of course we like! Discover the world of brewing and craft beers from around the world, with global beer expert Matt Simpson.

Otherwise known as ‘The Beer Sommelier’, American Matt is a highly regarded specialist when it comes to beers in his native America. Now, via the wonders of online learning, he’s bringing all that knowledge directly to you in the comfort of your own home with these four-part beer courses.

With an insatiable thirst for knowledge, beer fan Matt works as a consultant, event host, columnist, competition judge and industry promoter. That might be an impressive CV in the food and beverages world, but at the end of the day, Matt just likes a good quality craft beer like the rest of us!

The online course modules cover all the beer brewing industry essentials. You’ll look at ingredients; namely malt, grains, hops, water and yeast. Then you’ll learn about the beer-making process, before moving on to the style of beers. This is where your host's worldwide knowledge comes into play, covering American, German and British ales, lagers and beers.

The last couple of sessions will delve into how to correctly store, pour and present your craft beers to optimise the taste. Indeed, even the choice of glass you use can make a difference to the texture and taste of your favourite tipple!

We are offering Peer and Expert options for these online beer courses with Matt. The Peer is ideal for hobbyists, whilst the Expert gives you personal one-to-one feedback on your assignments and a certificate signed by The Beer Sommelier to confirm you know your malts!
