Beer is one of the most popular beverages in the world. There hasn’t been a division of beer in „light“ and „dark“ in bars and restaurants, for quite some time now. The selection of beers and the flavours that we find in them are getting more and more sophisticated. This training brings you advanced knowledge about beer.

The lecturer Zvonimir Pelko will introduce you to the world of beer in two days of theory and tasting. With the completion of the program “Biersommelier” on Doemens Akademie (Graefelfing, Munich, Germany) and a matchless enthusiasm, he is the only “Doemens Biersommelier” in the Croatia and South Eastern Europe. In addition to being one of the 2,000 “Doemens Biersommelier” in the world, he continuously upgrades his knowledge by traveling from brewery to brewery. He is also the CEO of MAS Plenum company which specializes in the import of foreign specialty beers on the Croatian market. This means that we are leaving you in the hands of a professional.
