Managers in senior positions within the supply chain of a brewery or similar industry often do not have a brewing background, but are themselves managers for Master Brewers. This course will make the participants able to exploit and challenge Master Brewers when discussing raw materials, CAPEX, NPD, QA and production issues. The level is demanding and teaching is in a small, exclusive team. The first module will focus on raw materials, malting, brewhouse, modern yeast performance, fermentation and stabilisation through various filtration systems to various packaging systems. You will learn basic brewing calculations and brewery dimensioning. The second module will focus on modern plant maintenance concepts, KPI’s, utility management and modern packaging materials. We will look at production as part of the Value Chain in the brewery with warehousing, transport, distribution and planning.
Who will benefit?
Senior supply chain managers with an ambition to learn about brewing, beer processing, packaging and utilities.
What is required?
An educational background within engineering, logistics, financing or commerce at advanced level and excellent English skills to be able to read and understand a large amount of technical English. We expect the participants to perform team exercises in class and plant environment, work into evenings and to take an active part in the course. There is a written test at the end of the second week. Successful candidates will be entitled to membership of the “Danish Master Brewers Association”.
When, where and how much?
Two modules of 5 days each at the Scandinavian School of Brewing in Copenhagen including visits to a malting plant, a can maker and two breweries. Please refer to ‘Calendar & Prices’.
