BrewCraft Academy in Hamburg is serving beer sommeliers and brewers from Northern Germany with in-depth education since 2016.
Full commitment to good beer in the far north. Brian Schlede was a management consultant in Hamburg and the alcohol-free Middle East for more than ten years. His last project led to a specialty malting plant and immediately to pure enthusiasm for the beer industry. Since then he has been interested in where the aroma in beer comes from and how the complex mixture of malt, hops and yeast influences the finished beer. He brings this knowledge under the BrewCraft brand as an independent raw material supplier and consultant for North German brewers and as a trainer for beer sommeliers.
His greatest wish is good beer all day long. That just doesn’t work with Double IPAs and Imperial Stouts. That’s why Brian has been working since 2016 on recipes and procedures for beers for the sake of seafarers and breakfast beer drinkers. In the north you can already buy some of his creations, which have already won medals. Especially, he wants to teach brewers how to brew alcohol-free beer that tastes better than the alternatives of large breweries.
