Testing Beer &
Brewery

Every brewer wants to ensure that their customers taste their beer in peak condition. Shelf life and stability can be major concerns, but Inland Island can help! Send us a sample of your beer and we will test to make sure that it is free of contaminants. We will provide you with the genus of any contaminants and help locate how contaminants got into the final product.

Need answers now?!! Inland Island can run your samples on PCR and get same day results. Our PCR can test for Brettanomyces/Dekkera species: B. bruxellensis, B. anomala, B. naardenensis, & B. custersiana. We can also test for Saccharomyces diastaticus which has been the cause of many major recalls over the past year. Trust your quality control to the experts with the most up to date methods!
