Brewlab is offering you and your colleagues the chance to experience a different kind of corporate day out; developing your communication, team work and - most importantly - beer appreciation!


Join Brewlab at The Darwin Brewery for the opportunity to brew your very own beer! Using our advanced brewing facilities each team (of three or four) will undertake individual and collaborative challenges whilst brewing beers on our River Wear site. The aim of the day will be to understand themselves, and their beers, better! With a final tasting session on your own premises at a later date, your group will even be able to evaluate their finished product with peers and colleagues.

Each team will produce 30 bottles of unique beer using a prescribed recipe or one designed with our expert guidance (to be discussed with a member of the Darwin team).

The Corporate Brew Team package covers: planning the project, formulating a recipe, conducting the brew, packaging the product and designing the labels of your own beer. We offer a tutored tasting to allow the beers to be compared and assessed and refreshments are available on site.

A member of our team will be in regular contact with you in the lead up to your Corporate Brew Team day to discuss the skills you want your teams to develop as well as to discuss beers and styles before your arrival. Any additions or amendments to the schedule can be discussed at this stage.
