The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) announced its intention to develop a suite of beer qualifications. WSET already offers qualifications in three subject areas – wine, spirits and sake – and plans to add two beer qualifications (Levels 1 and 2) to its portfolio, both online and in the classroom. WSET is working in partnership with the Institute of Brewing & Distilling on this initiative. The courses will explore the main types and styles of beer, key methods of production, tasting techniques, and food and beer pairings. Courses will initially be developed in English before being translated into other languages.
