Siebel Institute brewing courses come to Ontario
Oshawa – Durham College has announced they have signed on with Chicago-based Siebel Institute of Technology – North America’s oldest brew school – to deliver its craft brewing courses to Ontario in the Durham Region.
- Brewing Microbiology, which provides the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to implement an effective microbiological quality control/quality assurance program.
- Brewing Technology, which offers comprehensive knowledge of the brewing process, brewing operation dynamics and issues affecting the industry.
- Sensory Analysis for Flavor Production and Control, which gives brewers the tools they need to effectively identify and control flavors and aromas in beer.
“Durham College is bringing the gold standard in brewing education to Ontario’s thriving craft brewing community, which is comprised in large part by entrepreneurs who are looking to further develop both their business and product knowledge,” said Don Lovisa, president, Durham College.
“We are excited to be involved in bringing brewing-industry training to Ontario,” said Keith Lemcke, vice-president, Siebel Institute. “We look forward to working with Durham College and the brewing community in Ontario towards helping to train the next generation of great Ontario brewers.”
“From our first meeting with the management of Durham College we knew we would be working with professionals who were just as passionate about what was happening in craft brewing culture as they were about education,” said Lyn Kruger, president of Siebel Institute. “The groundwork they developed within the Ontario Craft Brewers Association and the surrounding brewing community has shown us the level of enthusiasm for professional brewing education that exists in Ontario, and we couldn’t be happier to be part of this program.”
