Keeping courses relatable with Building Beer Knowledge

As an initiative with the resources and funding to provide and deliver courses to hospitality businesses in the South West, it is one of our key aims that we keep our courses not only varied and interesting, but relatable for all of those attending.

On 18th November, we will be holding a Building Beer Knowledge course at Bodmin Jail.

Bodmin Jail was originally built for King George III in 1779; today’s jail was built with the help of the prisoners who brought 20,000 tons of granite from Bodmin’s Cuckoo Quarry.

As one of our members for Hospitality Table Cornwall, we wanted our Building Beer Knowledge course to have a unique approach in a unique setting and believe the venues for our courses are important.

During the one-day course, you will get to know more about the four main ingredients of beer and how it is brewed. Tasting your way through beers, you will be taken on a journey of flavours and learn through comparing beer samples, familiarising yourself with a diverse range of styles along the way. This course will also introduce matching beers to food to enhance upselling and profitability.

The course will be hosted by our WSET nominated educator Dean Bungay, our developer that spent 8 years running St Austell Brewery’s flagship establishment as well as be placed third in the South West Barista championships. Dean has also competed for a WSET scholarship and was part of St Austell Brewery’s retail steering forum while conducting bar training and mentoring for organisations.
