Raft Brew Labs

Company Overview

Raft Brew Labs supports the craft beverage industry with cutting-edge lab testing and analysis. Our analytical and consulting services help our clients reach their flavour targets, improve their products, gain efficiency in their facilities, and ensure that their products are free of microbial contaminants, allowing them to keep their products shelf-stable for their lifetime in the market. As a result, our clients can grow their market share, save on costs and distribute products confidently without fear of recall, or facility shutdowns.

Major Developments

Raft Brew Labs has just launched their client dashboard, a cutting-edge database and data visualization platform that allows their clients to visualize trends over time through graphs and tables. The dashboard can alert their clients to small drifts away from their targets so they can make corrections before any issues arise. This tool will be integral to their clients’ quality management programs and will be used to develop the first industry benchmarking reports.

Upcoming Events

Raft Brew Labs is in planning stages of an ongoing off-flavour detection series for brewers and taproom staff across Calgary’s local beer scene.
