Microbreweries are on the rise. 2,400 independent breweries have been identified in France in 2022. A figure which places France in first place among the countries with the most microbreweries in Europe. To ride on this trend, a new training course has just opened, in Poligny in Jura. The professional beer and spirits license is in collaboration with the Haute-Alsace University.

Boom of microbreweries in France

“There is a growing demand from the profession, because there are more and more microbreweries. The objective of this license is to teach students to master the management of production in breweries and distillation. This training covers the entire chain, from knowledge of agricultural raw materials to product characterization, including control of quality and hygiene,” explains Laure Bourgeois, trainer at ENILEA.

The pro license takes place on a work-study basis. Students learn their trade, part of the year, directly within a company. “In Franche-Comté, there is in particular the Baboon brewery, in Poligny, or the 2 barrels brewery, in Besançon, which are part of our long-standing partner companies. But more generally, within this license, we also learn to develop fermented drinks, such as cider, liqueurs, as well as strong alcohols such as gin.”

Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health, consume in moderation.
