(Frequently Asked Questions)

A Hopsonomist is a master of craft beer salesmanship. Hopsonomists are educated in beer basics, beer styles, and sales skills. They speak intelligently and confidently, using the skills they’ve learned to help others have a better craft beer experience. Once you pass the online Hopsonomist Certificate Exam, you have officially become a Hopsonomist.

We build custom courses – great for breweries that want to train new team members on their core line-up. Interested? Message us at hello@hopsonomy.com.

The beers included in each course are selected for Hopsonomists to compare what makes each beer similar and unique to others in the same style. Even if these aren’t beers you sell at your establishment, the purpose of the course is to teach Hopsonomists how to talk about beer by learning about many individual beers. Besides, beer line-ups change all the time. Great salesmanship is less about memorizing specific beers and more about describing flavors.

The craft beer industry is constantly changing, so we’re constantly creating new courses and updating content to help educate Hopsonomists on what’s brewing now. Keep an eye out for new content regularly.

We’ll send you a cool email when new courses are released.

We’re working on it for 2021. Stay tuned!
