New Zealand Certificate in Brewing (Level 4)

Otago Polytechnic

Our Central campus located in the heart of Central Otago is the ultimate location to study in a natural paradise. Here you can learn the art of brewing, in our brand new, purpose-built brewing facility.

This exciting new programme is the first in a suite of three that we offer, all leading to New Zealand qualifications. Learning the art and science of brewing from the ground up, immerse yourself in a practical learning experience which will involve the theory of the brewing process, technical brewing plans, production processes, volumes and of course, hands-on brewing of beer (including Pilsner, Ale, Lager and other craft styles).   

Work experience is a core part of this programme and will not only add to your practical experience but will help you make important connections in industry.

Whether you are new to the industry or a long-time home brewer, graduates of this programme will have the skills and knowledge required to work as a brewer in a commercial brewing operation under broad supervision.
