Roger Mittag | Professor of Beer

Roger Mittag, currently a Professor at both Humber and Niagara Colleges, is also the founder of Canada’s leading beer education company, Thirst For Knowledge. He has been bringing his beer appreciation tips to Canadians since 1997 through a series of tasting seminars, beer dinners and educational events. He is a consultant to several Canadian breweries bringing his extensive beer industry knowledge and enthusiastic approach to their sales and marketing teams.


He has recently created Prud’homme Beer Certification, a sommelier style program for beer and the first such program in Canada. Roger also owns and operates, The Beer School, which offers beer courses to consumers. He has recently co-authored a beer and barbeque book with chef Ted Reader, aptly titled – ‘Beerlicious, The Art of Grillin’ and Chillin’.


Roger has certainly ‘put his fingerprints’ on our beer portfolio and we are extremely proud of what we’ve created together. To have had the opportunity to gain such wisdom & knowledge from one of North America’s leading “beer experts” and have him involved throughout the entire process leaves us with a strong belief that we’ve got a beer for everyone here at MKT.
