1, 2 or 3 Day Course.


1, 2 or 3 Day Course. Various locations.

An ideal course if you have some basic experience in brewing but are looking to develop your knowledge of the fundamental principles and perfect your skills in daily operations.

It is difficult to learn the full details of the brewing process whilst operating the day to day activities. Our Brewing Skills Development regional programme allows you to focus on separate sections of brewing with direct application to your own operations. Local sessions in your region allow you to take the daily sessions which are most relevant to your needs along with on line resources for reference.

The Brewing Skills Development course takes you through the daily production process from the raw materials through to the finished product and is ideal to perfect your understanding and brewing skills.

By the end of the course you’ll be confident in managing your own operation, solving typical production problems and have a keen knowledge of how important quality control can be in improving your product. We will give you a certificate of attendance for use in your brewery quality assurance programme.

The course fee is £180 per day or £450 for three consecutive days. A £50.00 deposit is required to secure a booking. The balance is due 4 weeks prior to the course start date. Price includes VAT.

When booking please email to confirm which days you would like to attend.
