We'd like to give a huge pat on the back to our talented new employee George Langabeer, as he has just passed his Institute of Brewing & Distilling (IBD) Brewing Certificate at just 18 years of age, making him one of the youngest in the country to achieve this. This is the first brewing exam George has taken on the long journey to the highest accolade, IBD Master Brewer.
George has something of an obsession with brewing and continues to brew during weekends, at first managing to fit this in around his education and has now progressed into his position at Dartmoor Brewery... He does manage just a few hours off when he's not involved with beer!
We took George on as a school leaver last July and he has proved a real asset to our business. It's great to see someone at his age work hard and keep so focused on what he wants to achieve. He has signed up to take the first paper towards an IBD Diploma next June, which will be quite an achievement. We wish him luck and will certainly continue to help with any support he needs!
