Fields of expertise
Monthly Craft Meetings
We conduct monthly craft meetings where 1-2 breweries come to present themselves to our employees. We take an hour to learn each brewery’s history, any upcoming news and sample their products to keep them fresh in our minds.
We firmly believe that teaching up-to-date, accurate facts is crucial to create a proper knowledge base for our staff, accounts and neighboring beer lovers. We teach both Level 1 & Level 2 classes, provide samples, off-flavor kits and even host the Level 2 Certified Cicerone exams at our facilities.
We created the RHB Brew School in 2014 after purchasing our 15 gallon brewery. We use this educational brewery during our Cicerone classes and also invite community groups such as our local home brew organizations and the Pink Boots Society to come and spend the day brewing.
Mobile Brew School
In 2016 we created our mobile brew school which allows us to brew on a smaller scale at any of our branches. We focus on brewing with warehouse and sales teams so that every employee has an opprotunity to observe the process up close.
There is no better way to learn to home brew than to do it yourself. The best part is that as a company, we did not even need to advertise this fact. Both our beer and wine companies are filled with home brewers because they have a strong passion for it.
UBrew Home Brew Competition
In 2015 we started our in-house home brew competitions for our employees. In 2018 we decided to take it up a notch and host the Triad’s first home brew festival where home brewers in surrounding cities could come and compete for the grand prize.
