Can I introduce myself?
My name is Mark Tetlow BSc Brew. Dipl Brew. I have been working in the brewing industry for the last 30 years. I am the founder of The Beer Hub – a valuable resource for brewers and publicans.
The Beer Hub exists to offer a range of Consultancy Services allowing brewers and publicans to to ensure the safety, quality and consistency of serve. The Beer Hub also offers a range of beer events that can be tailored to meet your needs. These events are a great way to educate and enthuse your staff while raising the profile of your beers.
One area I am keen to help brewers and pub owners with is supporting the quality of their beers in trade. Recent articles I have written for Cellar Craft have had very positive responses from the industry and has led on to me working with a number of companies who have identified that the integrity of their brands can be seriously affected by poor practices at the point of dispense.By designing and delivering bespoke onsite training and support packages The Beer Hub is able to help mitigate some of these issues.
Working with a local micro brewery I have developed a beer brand BeerHub #1 a golden ale that is dry hopped with Mosaic hops to give it a soft apricot fruity nose.
The beer came second in the local CAMRA beer festival and is now sold in a number of pubs across the Midlands. I also work with big and small brewers covering everything from brewery start ups to supporting a National Brewers craft ale strategy and even acting as a consultant to a client looking to introduce Kombucha, fermented tea, into the market.
A bit about me
After graduating from Heriot Watt Brewing school I have worked for a number of regional brewers namely Sam Smiths, Marston and latterly at Everards where I was the Quality Assurance Manager responsible for the quality of their products from raw materials through to final beer dispense.
I have been very fortunate to work in all areas of the brewing process and also to work within the trade which I believe gives me a unique insight as not many brewers can claim to have worked from grain to glass. Part of my responsibilities have been to run Technical Services departments and in this role I have been involved in training and auditing licences to ensure that the quality products brewed in the brewery are served to the end consumers as the brewer intended.
Over the last 10 years I have run numerous Meet the Brewer events in pubs and venues across the country, speaking to over 8000 customers sharing my passion for beer, brewing and beer food matchings.
In 2016 I successfully gained the Beer Academy’s Beer Sommelier award becoming the first Beer Sommelier in Leicestershire. I now train on behalf of the Beer Academy and run customer beer classes across the UK. I have also written articles for the press and spoken on the radio about beer and beer and food matchings.
Please take a look at The Beer Hub for a full description of the areas that I cover.
