Building work has begun on SABMiller's centre for brewing research in the UK as part of a GBP25m (US$37.8m) public-private partnership.

Builders broke ground on the University of Nottingham's Bioenergy Centre earlier this week.

The 3,100 square-metre facility will include a centre for brewing technology and innovation that is being funded by SABMiller.

The Peroni Nastro Azzurro brewer will run a complete pilot brewery at the centre. It already sponsors the university's chair of brewing science, professor Katherine Smart.

SABMiller's chief brewer, professor Barry Axcell, said of the project last year: "Pilot breweries have, up until now, been places where new brands are brewed and trialled. What we are creating is a facility that can simulate a whole range of brewing conditions, allowing us to develop expertise, products and procedures that will ensure SABMiller leads the industry in brewing innovation."

As well as the brewing facility, the new complex will house a Food and Biofuel Innovation Centre and one of the six Sustainable Bioenergy Centre research programmes funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).

Construction is set to be complete within 12 months.
