Word leader in scientific support and technical services to the brewing industry, Campden BRI, is offering two must-have brewery courses in three days this autumn.

An introduction to brewery microbiology runs from September 25-26, and promises in-depth training in brewery hygiene.

Among the first day topics are detection and identification of beer spoilage micro-organisms, brewery hygiene and ongoing monitoring of cleanliness, sampling, sample plans and HACCP – together with a complete grounding in microbiology. Day two will give the delegates a chance to do a basic brewery audit on a small local brewery, to put into practice what they learned on the previous day.

An optional afternoon session will allow participants to review basic microbiological techniques in the laboratory. The cost of the course ranges from £355-400 +VAT. For more information visit the link below.

And for those who need to come to speed with beer labelling requirements, Campden is running a one-day course on September 27.

It is tailored to people in regulatory, marketing or design roles who have labelling responsibilities and quite simply shows how to produce a legal label for beers ciders or perries and similar alcoholic beverages. The course outlines the regulatory labelling provisions currently in place in the UK and EU and covers the imminent changes in EU labelling law.

A wide range of topics cover everything from product names to weights and measures – and even provides guidance on such matters as allergen labelling and gluten-free and organic claims. The cost ranges from £225-330 +VAT.
