Asia Brewers Network



At the Asia Brewers Network we strongly believe continual education is essential for brewers to develop their skills, that’s why we’ve teamed up with the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago (USA) to bring you their series of Specialised Lectures*.

Learn when you want  |  Learn where you want

We know you are busy so these lectures are available online, on demand so you can learn when you want.

The lectures vary in length from 45-90 minutes and are perfect for brewers looking to increase their brewing knowledge, or business owners wanting to provide education to their workforce.

Siebel Specialised Lectures

*Please note, this series of Specialised Lectures are not a certified brewing course. They are intended as a pathway for brewers to develop a greater understanding of the brewing process.
