WHO PROVIDES THE COURSE?
BEER HEAVEN / NOFFLA
In 2016 NOFFLA (National Off-Licence Association) approached Dean McGuinness (Twitter – @beermessiah) to develop a multi-level craft beer and cider training programme. Dean McGuinness is Ireland’s foremost authority on craft beer – a qualified Beer Sommelier, a beer importer and craft beer brewer with 15 years’ experience and trained in the Siebel Institute in Chicago (the oldest brewing school in the U.S.).
Dean has been talking and representing craft beer at trade and consumer events, as well as on Irish media for over a decade and is perfectly positioned to deliver a training programme that meets the needs of people seeking to understand craft beer and cider and to explain beers and ciders to their customers.
