After being in the world of beer for quite some time already I decided to participate in the unique beer sommelier education by Doemens and the Bierakadmie. The course is designed for professionals who work in the alcoholic beverage industry specializing in the service and knowledge of beer. This knowledge includes an understanding of styles, brewing, ingredients, history of beer and brewing, glassware, beer service, draught systems and food pairings. Since my educational background from university is in the area of business and management, graduating with a diploma to become a certified beer sommelier was the best match to complete my studies for doing what I am doing.

I was exposed to many different styles of beer of which some I didn’t even know before. As a result, we at St. ERHARD are already working on a new beer which we are going to develop together with our seasoned brewmaster. It will be based on an ancient European beer style and new to many of you but I can’t tell you more at this point in time so stay tuned to be the first to know. 🙂

To get an idea of what I’ve learned at the beer sommelier course you can watch this TV feature from Bayerisches Fernsehen which visited us during the course:
