Bringing with it over 50 years of educational experience, WSET’s new beer qualifications set the global standard for tasting and education in the beer category. Beer is WSET’s fourth qualification subject stream following wine, spirits and sake.

WSET Level 1 and 2 Awards in Beer will provide both trade professionals and beer enthusiasts with the product knowledge and tasting skills to become more beer confident. Launching online and in-person, the courses will explore the main types and styles of beer, key methods of production, tasting technique and food pairings. Using WSET’s trademarked Systematic Approach to Tasting, students will be equipped with a universal language to describe what they’re tasting and a framework for assessing quality.
