Siebel Institute Of Technology


The Siebel Institute has a long history in brewing education and research, making it one of the world’s most respected brewing schools and analytical laboratories.

In early 2000, Lallemand purchased a majority share in the Siebel Institute of Technology, the oldest brewing school in North America. Established in 1872, the Siebel Institute manufactures laboratory media and offers services such as yeast culture maintenance, DNA fingerprinting, beer evaluation and analysis, recipe formulation, consulting and contract research.

With industry-leading laboratory and research facilities staffed by highly qualified personnel, Siebel Institute works to continually add new services that meet the needs of brewers of every size.

In education, the Siebel Institute continues its role as a world leader in professional training services for the brewing industry. With campuses in Chicago and Montréal, Siebel Institute offers courses that cover topics ranging from home brewing to the industry’s most advanced brewing microbiology program.

The Siebel Institute also partners with Doemens Academy of Germany to offer courses under the World Brewing Academy (WBA) name, offering campus-based courses in both Munich and Chicago as well as the most advanced web-based training program in brewing. The flagship course, the 12-week WBA International Diploma in Brewing Technology program, takes dozens of students each year on an intense international training program in the U.S. and Central Europe, providing the most unique course experience offered anywhere in the world.
