Jane Peyton, beer sommelier, drinks educator, and founder of Beer Day Britain awarded a top business accolade

Her company School of Booze has been named as one of London and South-East England’s Top 100 Small & Medium Sized Enterprises 2021.

School of Booze was founded by Jane in 2008 and is unique in the range of services it offers – beer, cider & wine training in person, by video conferencing, and via an e-learning platform, drinks writing services, drinks consultancy, and corporate tasting events.

The South-East Business Awards are run in association with NatWest bank and Newsquest Media Group to recognize, celebrate, and encourage British enterprise and business leaders.  This is especially crucial because of the global pandemic’s negative impact on smaller businesses including School of Booze which made a 360 ? change by developing an e-learning platform for beer, cider & wine training, and offered corporate events and drinks training by video conferencing.  For this pivot School of Booze has been recognized in another business awards by being a finalist for the Great British Entrepreneur Awards to be announced in November 2021.

Jane Peyton commented “It’s a fantastic feeling for me and School of Booze to be recognized in the business awards. I get such pleasure from work and meet wonderful people so to be rewarded for doing something that I love is even more special.  Seeing how well my beer, cider and wine e-learning platform has been received by hospitality clients and members of the public who want to learn more about their favourite drink has been particularly exciting.’
