Not a topic or segment that I considered when starting this podcast. They can be applied to any business across practically any industry, but our episodes and conversations today are tailored and applied to life within a brewery’s business. More than just one topic, but I feel they all have an important role to play and they seem to interrelate and blend into one another, and that is People & Culture, Training & Safety within A Brewery and across the greater industry itself.

In part 1 of the segment, I talk with Chief Brewer at 4 Pines Brewing Co, Chris Willcock. Chris has been working within the brewing industry for over 10 years now, and is well placed to share his experiences and insights of seeing a small family run brewery gain growth and momentum into a medium and large sized one to then eventually being bought out by the big boys, and not just once but twice in his brewing career.
In this time, his gotten to see the work and team cultures change and adapt, the challenges a business experiences when it comes to dealing with growth, and how it’s systems and processes have had to evolve to become more formalised. Chris also is a qualified Master Brewer, being a pass student of the Institute of Brewing & Distilling, and shares further details on the important role the IBD has played in the formal training and development for brewers globally.
