One-to-One Cellar Training

annabel_one_to_oneIf you are looking for one-to-one cellar management training in the comfort of your own pub then this is the solution for you.

For just £85 + VAT (£95 + VAT for non Cask Marque members) one of our qualified assessors/trainers will make an appointment with you to visit at a mutually convenient time and date in your pub to train up to three people. They will go through a one hour training session on how to look after cask ale from cellar to glass and will also conduct a short cellar audit, covering 10 key points in the cellar such as cooling equipment, stock rotation, cellar cooling, glasswashing. Feedback will be provided as you go and a copy of the industry 'Profit through Quality' cellar manual will be left behind. A Cask Marque training certificate will also be sent out once you have completed the course.

The training covers:

  •  Difference between cask and keg beer
  •  Terminology (keystones, shives, hop filters, soft and hard spiles, rods, container sizes)
  •  Importance of hygiene and temperature
  •  What to do on delivery
  •  How and when to vent the cask
  •  How long the beer will take to condition
  •  How to tap/rod the beer
  •  Preliminary checks before beer goes on sale
  •  Stock levels and range
  •  How to improve yields
  •  Handy trouble shooting
  •  Pouring the beer to minimise wastage
  • Cooling equipment and how it works

Up to three people can attend for this price (we would suggest it is worth getting 2 or 3 of you together at the same time). For any extra people after this we charge £5 per person (this is because the more people there are, the more questions there are and the longer it takes). It is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have about cask ale or the equipment you are using to ensure your beer is delivered in perfect condition at the correct temperature.

£85 + VAT (Cask Marque accredited pubs)
£95 + VAT (Non Cask Marque pubs)
