More on the event:

"Real ale has been to rehab. Craft beers are undergoing an unprecedented renaissance in the UK, with supermarkets stocking a broad variety of esoteric brands and fine dining restaurants matching beers to their menus. For home brewers, it's the perfect time to get into the game.

If you'd like to develop your own artisan ale and bring it to wider attention, this course will show you how. Hosted by renowned beer writer and marketing strategist Pete Brown, this refreshing seminar offers a comprehensive guide to the practicalities of bringing your personal speciality to market. Some of the UK's most renowned brewers and consultants provide no-nonsense advice on the logistical and commercial aspects of refining a beer, launching a microbrewery and marketing a new product. You'll learn about the equipment and quality control knowledge you'll need to get started, how to get bars and restaurants to stock your brew, and how to tackle the realities of setting up a small-scale commercial brewery. You'll also have the opportunity to try beers made by our speakers, and learn tips about the art of brewing that will enable you to perfect a beer you're proud to bring to market."
