Steve ParkesWelcome to the American Brewers Guild! 

If you are new to the Guild, let me extend a welcome to the nation's premier brewing school for the craft brewing industry. Over the years we have earned a strong reputation for providing the brewing industry with the kind of brewer it needs. 

We developed the CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program (CBA) to address the need for new brewers to have some practical experience and training on graduation. We then developed the Distance Education version of the CBA to aid students of brewing science in obtaining that all-important qualification while working at their breweries or other jobs. 

As technology allows we will continue to develop the Distance Education CBA so that it will continue to be at the forefront of brewing education into the next century. Each year two correspondence courses, the Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering and the CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program courses will be offered twice each, in February and July.

Tour our Web site and if you have any more questions give us a call.
