Grist Analytics and the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) recently announced a new partnership in a mission to advance the science and quality of brewing around the world. Long-time ASBC member, Brynn Keenan, started Grist to help breweries of any size build quality programs by managing production data. With leading QC, data analysis, and workflow software, Grist Analytics provides various tools to help clients make data-driven improvements, including a community knowledge base. Notoriously difficult-to-use brew, cellar, and packaging data are analyzed in Grist and used for automated real-time quality feedback, predictive scheduling, and continuous improvement. This allows Grist breweries to reach the upper tier of quality and consistency, pushing the brewing industry forward.
As the premier nonprofit, professional association dedicated to scientific excellence in brewing, ASBC will work closely with Grist Analytics to explore the use of data and analytics in improving the beer quality and consistency across breweries of all sizes. Additionally, as part of this partnership, Grist will donate a portion of the proceeds from Grist subscriptions fees to the ASBC Research Council Fund. This research fund provides vital grants toward scientific projects that advance brewing science through developments, such as new scientific methods, publications, and research presentations. The results of this research benefits not only ASBC members but also the brewing and allied industries as a whole.
The brewing industry is constantly evolving, and the need for science-based approaches and solutions to industry-wide issues has never been greater.
“This partnership is about providing resources and support to brewers looking to leverage data and analytics in their operations,” said Kim Bacigalupo, president of ASBC. “Both ASBC and Grist are committed to driving innovation and excellence in the brewing industry and are excited to work together to achieve these goals. That’s what makes this partnership so perfect.”
Keenan, CEO of Grist Analytics, stated “Brewing is a complex and multifaceted process, and we at Grist believe that data and analytics can play a crucial role in helping brewers to optimize their operations and make good beer better. Supporting research, like the projects coming out of the ASBC Research Council, is part of our core mission, and we’re excited to help drive the industry forward.”
With the partnership well under way, current and prospective members of ASBC are encouraged to discover the value that Grist Analytics can bring to their organizations.
