Experience a World Class Beer Education Program

Prud'homme Beer Certification®, a beer sommelier program and the first in Canada was created in 2009 to meet the needs of a rapidly changing desire for more beer knowledge. This multi-level beer education course has something to offer to everyone from the beer aficionado to the hospitality professional.

What makes Prud'homme Beer Certification® different from other beer education programs?  They're plugged into the beer community.  

Graduates own breweries, design draught systems, manage successful hospitality locations and write about beer for national publications.  You'll see them speaking at festivals, hosting unique events and sharing their vast knowledge of beer at beer establishments across Canada.

In a world of curious, passionate and demanding beer drinkers presented with an exploding variety of beer styles, it’s important to be able to speak knowledgeably about and understand beer.

Prud’homme Beer Certification® is the only beer education program that provides a well-structured, unbiased look at the world of beer.
