DonDoes30.com - Beer 101 Certification

Beer is great. Enough beer makes you truly believe you can dance, that you're extremely attractive, and sidesplittingly hilarious, and let's you garner enough courage to convince others of those same facts. Thus, beer has been absolutely essential in getting uncoordinated, ugly, boring, and otherwise unbangable people laid.

I'm not exactly a stranger when it comes to beer. For Christmas a few years ago, my in-laws gave me a homebrewing kit to produce beer in large quantities because they only know two facts about me: I like to drink and I like football.

But even after all my hands-on experience, my willingness to try new — even gluten-free — beers, and brew my own special batches in a few short weeks, there still is plenty of useful information to learn.

Beer 101 Certification Course

See the certification up there? Granted by The Brewers Association, I have shown proficiency in "the brewing process, beer ingredients, beer and food pairing, and beer styles." In previous years, I have only shown proficiency in consuming mass amounts of beer, getting obscenely drunk, pissing a lot of people off, possibly getting kicked out of establishments and even picking a fight or two — so this is definitely a step up.

The certification is touted as "something that everyone from the beer beginner to the full fledged beer geek will find indispensable on the path to greater craft beer knowledge." Cost: FREE

What You'll Learn

  • The proper techniques to serve and the right way to savor each beer.
  • Understand the world’s oldest beverage and how it has enhanced our culture for thousands of years.
  • Explain the basic steps involved in the brewing process.
  • Explain the vast variety of beers as well as the food pairings to complement any style.
  • The course took less than an hour and covered all the topics listed above. A final exam of 14 questions is given at the end of the course and I highly recommend you take the test drunk because it's the principle of the thing.
