Entry level Draught (Draft)

Draught Executive course

Learn the foundations of draught service, technology, system design, troubleshooting, cleaning and more.


Draught beer represents a high level of profit opportunity for breweries, distributors and retailers, but it requires skilled service as well as proper system design and maintenance to deliver a high standard of quality and enjoyability to customers.

With this in mind, the Draught Executive course has been created to train busy salespeople, distributors and beer servers in the bedrock principles of draught service. The educational content of this two-day course is designed to give students the maximum understanding of draught technology in the shortest time possible. Through a mix of classroom presentation and hands-on demonstration, the content will thoroughly address every critical issue in draught technology, with a topic mix that includes effective system cleaning, appropriate use of draught beer gasses, fundamental draught system design, retail troubleshooting and much, much more.
