This Cellar Management course will ensure that all employees working in any establishment with a bar have the appropriate knowledge needed to properly store, prepare and pour cask ales and keg beers.

Untrained bar staff can be responsible for up to £16,000 worth of wasted stock every year on a classic six-tap account, as well as lost reputation if flat, sub-par pints are poured. For this reason, Cellar Management training is recommended to ensure that your establishment succeeds.
