Hear from four different speakers on various aspects of the industry:

Jon Moore, representing BrewCon & the Beer Boars Brew Club, on the growth of home brewing as a hobby, how to find your local home brew club, and London’s yearly home brew convention

Claire Russell, Founder of Homebrewtique, on the business of home brewing and the story behind her unique home brew kits

Andy Parker, Owner & Head Brewer of Elusive Brewing, on going from home brewing to building his own commercial brewery

Pete Hughes, Group Head Brewer for Brewhouse & Kitchen, on going from home brewer to head brewer at Brewhouse & Kitchen

Each guest will provide a short presentation, followed by a panel discussion.

This masterclass covers how to create a successful blog, in addition to writing for other mediums: why and how you might write about beer, who for, content and subject matter, and who your audience is.  Please note that it focuses on the act of writing itself, rather than the ins and outs of HTML, SEO optimisation etc. This workshop is packed with useful hints and tips from one of the Guild’s most successful writers and current chair, Pete Brown.


Training | How to Create a Successful Beer Podcast with Emma Inch

Wenesday, 17th June from 10am – 4pm

This course will take you through everything you need to know from what a podcast is, to how to physically make one, and how to ensure it is successful once it’s out there. Covering the basics of equipment, content, editing and promotion, you should go away feeling much more confident to embark on making a podcast either for yourself or for an organisation.
