We have worked hard to make sure the essential steps of the brewing process are explained simply, by using lots of exciting new features to create an enjoyable learning experience. Our goal was to offer education for those who want to know more, but aren’t working in technical or operational roles and therefore don’t need as much scientific detail, “said Tracy Adie, IBD Head of Education and Professional Development.

“The making of Essentials in Brewing is one of the great milestones that the IBD has achieved. For the first time, we are offering an on-demand self-assessed course. The uniqueness of this course is its interactive and multimedia format and the quality of the content produced. We are also following our charitable mission to provide an exceptional course at an affordable price to ensure that anyone in the industry who would like to take it, can do it. This is also an example of our ambition to educate industry professionals at all levels with more interactive and flexible content responding to the way new generations are learning”, said Jerry Avis, IBD Chief Executive Officer.
