Testing and Education

The University of Southern Maine's Quality Control Collaboratory (QC2), in partnership with the Maine Brewers' Guild, provides state-of-the-art laboratory analysis and testing for breweries and hop yards.

Laboratory Beverage Testing

Analytical chemistry is the art and science of using instrumentation and methods to separate, identify, and quantify matter - in our lab, we take this branch of chemistry and apply it to craft beverages.

Beer Testing

Use our individual analytical beer testing options to assure the same quality product for your customers every time.

Fermented Beverage Testing

We also offer a selection of analytical testing for other types of fermented beverages such as kombucha and wine.
