ELECTRICAL & MECHANICAL ENGINEERING STUDENTS FROM THE GHANA ARMY VISIT ABL FOR A BREWERY TOUR
23rd May, 2018
Accra Brewery Limited (ABL) hosted students from the Ghana Army’s Electrical & Mechanical Engineers Technical Training School in Burma Camp, for a tour of its premises as part of its Growing World initiative where everyone has the opportunity to improve their livelihood.
The students were welcomed at CLUB 31, our model bar located at the entrance of our premises. This is our rendezvous point where our guests and employees are refreshed with hors d’oeuvres and some of our non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages.
Ms. Adwoa Aaba Arthur, ABL’s Director of Legal & Corporate Affairs, said that “as a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABInBev), the world’s largest brewer, we seek to be recognised as a company admired for our commitment to improving the lives of more people in more communities, and making a real difference in our society”.
Also, Ms. Arthur mentioned that, “sharing the operations of our brewery with students gives us the opportunity to provide you with current innovations in the beverage manufacturing industry. We hope that this relevant information will further enhance your acquired knowledge in order to positively impact your future career goals.”
How we brew our BeerBrewing beer is an art we take seriously. The students learnt this at the first stage of the tour, which comprised of a presentation on how we brew our beer.
Mr. Wisdom Kofigah, ABL’s Quality Assurance Manager, introduced the students to the ingredients, namely barley, hops, yeast, and grains such as maize, used in our beer production.
Through a micro brewing demonstration, Mr. Kofigah explained how each ingredient is processed under ideal conditions to contribute towards brewing our great-tasting quality beer.
Packaging BeerDuring the second stage of the tour, Mr. Bernard Adzomadi, ABL’s Quality Specialist, offered unique insight into our packaging process.
He explained that the process begins with the unpacker, a device which unpacks bottles and crates for washing.
“After the bottles have been thoroughly washed, they go through a series of processes such as an Empty Bottle Inspector (EBI), which checks for flawed bottles. Bottles approved by the EBI are then filled with beer in the Filler Bowl, and crowned with crown corks”, Mr. Adzomadi explained.
The filled bottles go through several quality checks, before they are cleared for packing and subsequent nationwide distribution.
Back at CLUB 31, the students said that they had been profoundly impacted by the tour, and expressed gratitude to ABL for the opportunity.
