Beer Sommeliers

1 Expert On Beer & Ingredients

A beer sommelier knows beer in all its depth. Especially the water minerality, the malting of cereals, internationally grown hop varieties and also barrel aging has effects on the taste of beer. He is able to describe accurately the characteristics of ingredients and how they harmonize inside the beer styles.

2 Brewing & Fermentation Skills

Essential for a professional beer sommelier is an understanding of where the taste is produced within the brewing process and how fermentation and barrel maturation gives the beer style the perfect finish. The knowledge of a brewery from the inside enables the beer sommelier to handle the tapped or bottled beer appropriately and to suggest suitable dishes.

3 Superior Sensory & Beer Language

The sommelier knows the physiology of the senses and trains his senses to recognize aromas that are significant for the quality and description of the beer. He can use a sophisticated language to describe beers and aromas and make a contribution to a perfect beer menu.

4 Beer Style & History

The partly centuries-old tradition of different brewery regions characterizes many beer styles. The beer sommelier can blindly classify their characteristics and tell their story in order to make beer of every taste an exciting experience.

5 Beer Tap & Presentation

The beer sommelier has a technical and practical understanding of various dispensing systems and knows how to tap a beer quickly, hygienically and beautifully. He knows the right glasses and presents the beer in the gastronomy to your liking.

6 Beer & Food & Trends

The collected knowledge from sensory and beer knowledge enables the sommelier to recommend suitable dishes to the beer and thus to harmonize or even increase the taste experience. He also knows the current trends in the market and contributes to the innovative capacity of the gastronomy.
