Beer geeks will be delighted to learn you can now take an apprenticeship in craft brewing – and unsurprisingly a musician from Hackney Wick is one of the first to take the course.
The Craft Academy has opened its first ever training brewery in Herne Hill, south London where it will teach students the art of making beer.
Daniel Scott, 25, is one of the first two budding brewers to take the course and is now halfway through his bespoke NQ level 3.
Originally from Sheffield, Daniel began home-brewing at university before getting a job at his local bottle shop.
So far he and Nancy Nangle, the other student, have learnt about brewing, bottling and distributing beers.

Daniel said: “I would encourage brewers to get involved with Craft Academy. I have been learning about three different areas of work within the craft beer industry, which not only puts me in a great position for the future, but continues to expand my skillset.”
Dan was offering his advice to people thinking of applying for the course last week. Anyone who fancies it can check out unbottlingpotential.co.uk.
