Students gain industry insight on brewery tour


12 November 2017

Molson Coors Brewing Company visited Burton and South Derbyshire College (BSDC) on Monday 13th November to offer Level 2 Catering and Hospitality students the opportunity to learn more about beer by taking part in a session that included an informative presentation, malted barley and hops to sample, followed by a brewery tour.

After sampling the malted barley and hops, students embarked on a Molson Coors brewery tour with Beer Expert, Aleks Toczek, which gave them an insight into the exciting world of beer making. Aleks shared his industry knowledge and experience with the students, giving them an in-depth knowledge of the drinks that they serve to Mulberry customers. The trip was designed to help students with the Food and Beverage unit of their course, which covers the different types of beers and how they are produced.

Aleks said: “It’s great that we have been given the opportunity to share Burton’s renowned brewing tradition with BSDC students. I believe it is important for people to have an understanding of how beer is made and how it can be enjoyed.”

Lecturer and Restaurant Manager, Denise Oliver said: “The visit and tour gave students a better understanding of the brewing process. I feel that trips such as these are an important part of the learning journey as it adds enrichment, experience and excitement to the course. Our partnership with industry leaders such as Molson Coors gives our students hands-on experience and helps them to gain the skills employers are looking for.”
