Individual Education

We know studying for industry exams on your own can be tough.  We make sure you have all the support you need with our complete training packages at significantly reduced prices. In other words, this is our most in depth training but with a lower price for individuals. Plus you can even order off-flavor sensory vials from us so you can conduct off-flavor tastings in your own home. You'll get everything you need all in one place. What could be better? When you order the Beer Conscious Training Program for individuals, you will gain invaluable knowledge on over 25 topics.

Topics Include:

Keeping, Serving and Properly Tasting Beer

Beer Conscious LogoWe cover everything from draft system design and maintenance to the history of beer to the serving and tasting of numerous beer styles. We also cover over a dozen additional relevant issues that you need to know, including preparing you for the second level of the Cicerone Exam, the three tier system, and every beer style you’re likely to encounter in life or on an industry exam.

The Cicerone Exam

Beer Conscious LogoNot only do we cover all the details you need to know to pass the Cicerone Exam, but we can add off-flavor training sensory vials to any order. Not only will you be ready ready to pass the written portion of the exam, but the tasting portion as well. Just inquire with us during or after your order below. And, we cover what you need to know to pass other exams like the BJCP, Beer Steward and more.

Ingredients and The Brewing Process

Beer Conscious LogoFour individual sections illustrating each of the main brewing ingredients (Water, Malt & Adjuncts, Hops, and Yeast) as well as our most in-depth section on how they are brewed together to make hundreds of beer styles. Plus, we’ll cover what causes different off-flavors and how they taste compared to perfect brews.

Beer and Food Pairing

Beer Conscious LogoThe most vital aspects of pairing, such as intensity, complementary flavors and contrasting flavors will be covered in detail, along with many other pairing concepts. After you have a solid understanding of the concepts we’ll cover specific pairings and even cooking with beer. Plus any of the topics we cover can be expanded on in your customized training.
