Benefits of attending

This intensive short course will provide those new to the Brewing Industry with a basic understanding of the brewing process. It is suitable for employees at all levels in the organisation who need to have a basic technical understanding of the malting and brewing process. On days one and two each topic is covered by experts in that area, and on the optional third day attendees can have hands-on training in either the pilot brewery or the maltings at the Campden BRI Nutfield site. In addition we are now offereing the core course elements either via interactive web based training or at your site.
