We completed our latest Certificate in Practical Brewing programme this month and are pleased to be unleashing our newest graduates into the industry!

Following successful completion of exams and assessments, the class is now well placed to use their qualifications to fulfil ambitions that ranged from gaining jobs in the industry through to setting new microbreweries.

The 3 week course is an intensive period of study that delivers in depth brewing theory and practical brewing experience, alongside business and start up requirements. Students get the chance to create and brew their own recipes twice here at Brewlab – as a feature we arrange a competition at the end of the course to judge the ‘best beer in class’. Ben from Ireland scooped first prize this time round, with a what happened to be his first ever brew. He created a 4.5% IPA with target, centennial and Amarillo hops. Ben stated ‘I’m proud that my beer was voted the best by my fellow classmates, all the beers were a great standard. It’s a recipe I created here at Brewlab with the help of Arthur, I wanted something hoppy and punchy and with his guidance that’s exactly what I got! The course overall has been a superb experience, there is so much knowledge to take in, but it’s delivered in an accessible way. The practical brew days and commercial placements were invaluable. I’d thoroughly recommend the course!’

Vardhan from India also stated ‘The course has been highly informative. Whilst I understood the brewing process before I came, I now appreciate the background more and therefor know exactly what I’m doing and why I’m doing it.’

Arthur the course manager also stated ‘The students brew to specification assessment results were very high and that reflected in the quality of the final product. They were highly commercial and the processes followed will stand them in good stead for future careers.’

The course will next run in October, for further information and booking check out the course page or contact richard@brewlab.co.uk.
