Want to learn more about beer and show what you know? Sign up for Virtual Beer School!

Developed by award-winning beer educator, Beer Sommelier, and Advanced Cicerone® Natalya Watson, Virtual Beer School offers interactive online prep courses for the Certified Beer Server and Certified Cicerone® exams.

  • Virtual Beer School: Level 1 is a 9-week interactive online prep course for the Certified Beer Server exam and it’s open to anyone around the world with an interest in building up their beer knowledge. (There is no requirement to take the Certified Beer Server exam at the end.)
  • For those who have already passed their Certified Beer Server qualification, Virtual Beer School: Level 2 is a 12-week interactive online course that helps prepare attendees for the online written portion of the Certified Cicerone® exam.

Both courses begin again on February 1st, 2023 and sign ups are now open!

In order to enable more flexible participation, Natalya has introduced a new course structure for the next cohort – both courses now feature pre-recorded video lessons, plus weekly online live discussion sessions with Natalya.

This change was made to enable attendees to watch the course materials at a time that best suits their schedule and to give them more time to process each lesson before taking questions on it. There have been no changes to the course content.

For more information on the courses or to sign up, visit the Virtual Beer School website:

Natalya also offers bespoke training programmes for breweries and venues – past clients include Lucky Saint, The Five Points Brewing Company, and Boundary Brewing. To learn more, contact
