Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s (KPU) Brewing and Brewery Operations program is the only brewing diploma in BC and the first brewing program in Canada to be recognized by the Master Brewers Association for offering a standard of excellence in brewing education. Students study the science, production, and business of brewing craft beer. The program combines building a solid foundation in brewing science with hands-on practical learning in our state-of-the-art 2HL NSI pilot brewery on KPU’s Langley campus.
Our students have won gold, silver and bronze in the US Open College Beer Championships (2018 and 2017); and second place at the 2018 BC Beer Awards (KPU 50/50 Hefe) and third place at the BC Beer Awards in 2017.
