Education is a big part of what we do. Be it consulting, teaching, presenting invited seminars at major brewing and distilling conferences or just posting neat items concerning chemistry, microbiology or processes.
We just added new classroom space in 2016 - taught brewing sensory classes there in 2017 and now, with the new division - Brewing and Distilling Educational Services (BDES, Est. in 2017), will be offering both internal staff and external expert-led classes and courses - mainly in quality control and sensory aspects for brewing and distilling - starting in April 2018.
Watch for more details here and come see us at our booth at the Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville - April-May, 2018.
