Brewing and Distilling Analytical Services (BDAS, LLC)
We have as much fun testing it as you do making it - well it is full of good cheer after all! Full of camaraderie and the greatest business to be in."
BDAS, LLC is the premier alcohol product testing laboratory, located in Lexington KY, now proudly serving well over 1000 breweries, distilleries and wineries.
Testing alcoholic beverages and beverage raw materials (hops, malts, water and more).
We also consult and provide support to National, International, Regional and Local Craft Brewers, Craft Distillers and other craft product businesses (testing chocolates, ice-creams, liquors, cakes and other products made with alcohol as an ingredient).
Our team of four - 3 degree-qualified chemists and a degree-qualified microbiologist are here to serve the industry just as we have been doing for 16 years. It is mostly fun - especially after testing a beer/spirit or two - more so if they are in specification. Mostly smiles and good humor - and we don't bite - someone will be close to a phone to catch the numerous requests and help calls we get. And we are meeting with clients all the time at key brewing and distilling meetings - often on both sides of the podiums.
BDES? To better serve our educational program offerings - we have taught sensory evaluation to brewers for many years - both on and off site, we officially formed Brewing and Distilling Educational Services - BDES - as a division of BDAS, LLC in 2017. In forming BDES we formalize the role of our sensory and computer specialist colleague Tony Aiken - he will coordinate many of the sensory programs and educational courses starting in March 2018. The Education and Sensory Menu is now titled as the BDES page and more news on the education side can be found there.
