Basics of Beer Quality Workshop

The Brewers Association (BA) Quality Instructor Mary Pellettieri teaches Basics of Beer Quality–Hands-on Workshop, in support of the vision of the BA quality subcommittee–to develop a membership that consistently produces beer of high quality.

The full-day workshop covers the fundamentals underlying some of the most common methods used to ensure consistency and quality in a craft brewery. With a hands-on approach, attendees will have the opportunity to use lab equipment and practice quality analysis methods.
