Start Up Brewing is a three-day theory-based course providing a comprehensive introduction to the brewing industry and requirements of a commercial venture. The course delivers an overview of the brewing process alongside brewery start up and legal considerations.
It is suitable for those considering brewing as a possible career change or business opportunity. By the end of the course, you would be aware of the realities of running a brewery business and be able to make informed decisions.
No background knowledge of brewing is required for the course.
Students are given the opportunity to learn about the stages of brewing and discuss start up issues including finance and regulations with working brewers and commercial specialists. Parts of the theory are brought to life through demonstrations on our commercial 3.5 barrel kit and packaging facilities.
The course is tutored by industry specialists who have a vast wealth of expertise and experience in their fields.
For those looking to take a deep dive into quality assurance and packaging requirements, we have added Craft Brew Quality and Craft Brew Packaging as bolt on days to follow the course. The days can be booked for a discounted price of £160 each when booked with Start Up Brewing (normal price £215).
Many of our students go on to gain practical brewing skills with our four-day Intensive Practical Brewing Skills course or accredited 3-week Certificate in Practical Brewing course.
