Brewmasters may have had a formal education in the subject from institutions such as the Siebel Institute of Technology, VLB Berlin, American Brewers Guild, University of California at Davis, University of Wisconsin, Olds College or Niagara College. They may hold membership in professional organisations such as the Brewers Association, Master Brewers Association, American Society of Brewing Chemists, the Institute of Brewing and Distilling, and the Society of Independent Brewers.
Depending on a brewery's size, a brewer may need anywhere from five to fifteen years of professional experience before becoming a brewmaster;
According to the Bureau of Labor, the average salary of a brewmaster in 2011 was US$38,910, but brewmasters at large national breweries can earn more than $100,000.
