Food safety is often an afterthought when opening a new brewery. However, it is an integral part of making a food-safe product. Beer is considered food and should be treated as such, regardless of the size of the brewery. The Master Brewers Food Safety Committee regularly releases Food Safety Bulletins, called Food Safety Bites, for a deep dive into subjects that affect your everyday life in the brewery world. Food Safety Bites provide key information about relevant food safety topics to help you improve your programs or implement new ones.
