Quality Is Our Craft

We are open Monday through Friday from 9 - 5 pm. Feel safe dropping your samples off with our contactless drop-off.

The QC2 Lab will be closed the week of Thanksgiving (November 22 - 26)
to give our team time to spend with family.

We are closed Tuesday, February 16th due to inclement weather.
We'll be back at it on Wednesday!

Quality Control Testing Education

Ready to take the next step from sending out samples to learning what goes inside the lab? We currently offer a selection of testing and subject matter workshops for enthusiasts and working professionals alike.


Our one day workshops range in subject from establishing an in-house Q/A program to learning the specifics about disease and containmination.


The QC2 team is working to create a library of educational material focused on quality control and quality assurance in the craft beverage industry.


We're working on a series of video based, eLearning courses on subjects relating to quality assurance, establishing in-house protocols and granular subjects in the realm of analytical chemistry. Stay tuned!
