Craft Beverage QA/QC: Best Practices for Safeguarding Product Quality
Dec 8 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

There are many reasons for a craft beverage producer to invest in quality – catering to a more demanding consumer base, staking out a competitive edge, preparing for more distant distribution – but determining how to implement QA/QC can be difficult.  In this webinar, Virginia SBDC Craft Beverage Assistance Manager Chris Van Orden will speak with Audrey Skinner, Gastronomical Chemist and Founder of Imbibe Solutions, about the steps that planned, new, and growing beverage producers can take to safeguard quality, improve product stability, and lengthen shelf-life.

Webinar presented by The Virginia SBDC Craft Beverage Assistance (CBA) program. Visit the CBA program page for more information.


Audrey Skinner is a Gastronomical Chemist and Founder of Imbibe Solutions, an independent laboratory that works with craft alcohol businesses to supplement and enrich their quality control programs. She has helped many brewers, winemakers, and other craft-fermenters improve processes, ensure product stability and cleanliness, expand shelf-life, and enhance overall product quality. Her goal is to provide small-scale craftsmen with beneficial, quantifiable data so they can be competitive in the growing marketplace.
