Umbrella organization

DOEMENS e.V. is a registered non-profit organization and the umbrella organization of Doemens. Education serves as the foundation for all that we do at Doemens e.V., and therefore a substantial part of our organization consists of Doemens Academy, a state-recognized educational institution for brewing and beverage technology where, among others, qualification courses are offered for vocational certification in topics on beer, beverages and food.

In addition, the Savour Academy offers a wealth of opportunities for specialization based on a fundamental understanding of beer and mineral water, emphasizing the intrinsic value of these products and their potential for enhancing one’s enjoyment of life’s simple pleasures. The Savour Academy is best known for its Beer Sommelier program. The Masters of Beer Institute offers all certified beer sommeliers the opportunity to expand their knowledge base through additional courses in this area.

A subsidiary of Doemens e.V., Doemens Academy GmbH offers a range of seminars and consulting services. The Seminars Division provides training options for continuing education in all aspects of beverage technology. Seminars are held on the Doemens campus in the community of Gräfelfing (a municipality of Munich) or as in-house company training sessions at locations around the world. In cooperation with the Siebel Institute in the USA, Doemens offers brewing science courses in English at the World Brewing Academy with an emphasis on international brewing technology.

The Consulting Division provides traditional consulting services for equipment and technology as well as for business and economics in addition to laboratory support and analysis with assistance from our research and development department.
