The ICBI (Independent Craft Brewers of Ireland) are now signed up to our Draught Beer Dispense programme and 18 brewers have started into the programme.
In Ireland, the breweries are responsible for managing beer quality from keg to glass (so this covers areas like beer line cleaning, dispense gas, glass washing, beer cooling etc) so breweries have technicians employed to look after this. Two years ago, working with the IBA (Irish Brewers Association), we developed an accredited training programme for technicians designed to improve quality and safety in this area.
To date over 200 technicians (including technicians from Diageo and Heineken) have been certified. Great to see the ICBI coming on board.
