You missed our TAPROOM event?

Well, let us tell you what you missed so next time you don’t. OTB organised a multiplier event for the “TAPROOM: Training in the Production and Marketing of Organic and Craft Beer” project.

After two years of working on this project within an amazing partnership, we have learned so much, especially about beer. For example – did you know that women were the main brewers before the Middle Ages? Or that China was the leading producer of beer in terms of production volume in 2020 with around 341.11 million hectolitres of beer brewed? What about this: Anheuser-Busch InBev (Belgium) is the largest beer company in the world with a product portfolio of 500 beer brands. These are some intriguing facts indeed!

With the TAPROOM project coming to an end, we are also proud to have created something amazing throughout this project.

The project produced a tailored Learning Model, a Multidisciplinary training course, a Manual for trainers for course conduction, an E-Learning Platform with interactive repository section, and a Guidebook on certification of organic and craft beer production and marketing. You can check all the materials and learn something new right here.

In case you want to jump right on the TRAINING IN PRODUCTION AND MARKETING OF ORGANIC AND CRAFT BEER, here you can find the free course (24/7 access to TAPROOM online training; Multilingual content in five languages: English, French, German, Italian, Bulgarian; Access to various media – text, audio, video, chat, etc.; and Personalized accounts for learners and trainers).

Our  event to promote this project was organised in MAISON D’ISTRIE, Brussels. So, besides the great insights in this project, we had an amazing networking time accompanied by amazing food and music.

The TAPROOM project is implemented by 5 partners from Malta (Malta Business Foundation), Belgium (Out of the Box International), Italy (GAL Molise Verso il 2000), Bulgaria (AVA Creations Foundation) and Germany (Italienische Handelskammer München-Stuttgart Camera di Commercio Italo-Tedesca).


The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ KA2 Programme of the European Commission

Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
