Part of our company wide objective to recruit and develop quality people that believe in and can execute the Beer Revolution’s vision. We are constantly looking at ways to empower our people and their development is always a priority.
We are very proud to announce that two of our managers have completed their UCT Restaurant Managers Diplomas via Get Smarter. Congratulations to Fanent Thabiso and Michael Cain who passed the course with flying colours. The short online course has equipped these already very capable managers with more tools to excel in their roles at Beerhouse. Michael has been with our Fourways venue for two years and has shown that he is an astute leader. Fanent was one of our original employees three years ago at Beerhouse on Long. He was one of the best waiters that we have ever had the privilege of working with. He showed great initiative and was a team player. He has developed into a great leader who is very well respected by the staff and his senior managers.
The course covers topics such as, Safety and regulations, Menu planning and costing, Financial administration, Interpreting budgets, controlling costs and increasing sales, Managing a team, Training and Human Resource and Dealing with customers: Online and offline.Our awesome ‘Admin Fairy’, Preciouse Katsande, who has become a major driving force in our Social Media & Marketing team has just passed a Social Media & Marketing Course via Shaw Academy with a distinction. She is also completing her Honours in Integrated Organisational Communication with a focus on Advertising, Public Relations, Marketing and Communication Research. All the while working full time at Beerhouse Fourways. Way to go Presh, we are proud of you.
We are also very proud to announce that two of our dedicated and loyal Navigators have been promoted to the management teams at Long Street and Fourways. Prince Garpare and Frank Ngoma have been long serving and have applied themselves to all challenges. Not only are they fine young gentlemen but they take initiative and have helped drive Beerhouse forward. We look forward to your continued development and love that you are able to have a space to reach your undoubted potential. Keep growing with us and enjoy the ride.
All managers will be starting this month a internal management course developed by Beerhouse. The first module covers Leadership and staff engagement. The course that is made up of multiple modules including, people management, communication, menu planning and costing and deeper understanding of how a manager can effect the bottom line with their day-to-day actions will run over the next six months. We are very proud of our internal training as we continue to improve all facets that come together to empower and educate.

We are proud to announce our very first graduate class of Explorers at Beerhouse Fourways. Following hard on the heels of their colleagues at Beerhouse on Long – who passed the test last month – this group of Navigators has completed a three-month training course on the brewing process, core ingredients, beer styles and our service manual The Beerlovers Journey.
To gain the badge, Explorers have to prove they can navigate Beerlovers through Beerland by providing excellent attentive service and having strong product knowledge. The eight graduates (from left to right) are Khosi, Lucky, Godfrey, Frank, (a proud trainer – me), Patience, Max, Duncan and Leslie. We are proud of their achievement and are confident they are the best-trained beer servers in South Africa. The next step for the Explorers is to gain their Hop Head badges. To become a Hop Head, Explorers must be the masters of all things beer, and more importantly, start to teach others about the wonders of Beerland.
As we continue to educate and train these and our other talented and enthusiastic staff to industry-leading standards, we’re encouraging the public to join us: our weekly Beer School for Navigators will be open to public on Monday evenings with free training and beer tasting.
