In 2009, Prud’homme Beer Certification was created by Roger Mittag. Through his company Thirst For Knowledge Inc., Roger has come to realize that we are all looking for a bit more information when it comes to the world's most popular beverage alcohol, beer.
The translation of Prud’homme means ‘master craftsman or expert’. The description and fact that Louis Prud’homme was Canada’s first licensed brewer made the choice of the program name much easier.
The program began in 2009 with a series of classroom sessions. We later realized that we needed to expand the availability of the popular Toronto-based program. That forethought led to the development of the world’s finest online beer education program.
Beer education is different than beer certification. With beer education, we spend the time to help people learn about beer. With a certification program, people are rewarded for beer knowledge or skill they have earned.
