Passion for Quality

Our Passion for Quality workshop run by Edward Theakston has always got great reviews.  Covering all aspects of the bar and cellar it’s designed to be interesting and interactive and to include new initiatives such as SMART dispense – but still including key information, like how to get the best out of your cask ales.

The programme is aimed at both new and existing lessees and key staff so why not take this opportunity to use Edward’s knowledge and enthusiasm to train your team.

The day starts at 0930 with coffee and bacon rolls or pastries; refreshments and lunch will be provided.  The workshop finishes at about 1630.
