KPU Brew Lab

Langley, British Columbia

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 and bronze at the 2017 BC Beer Awards.

Stop by our booth at the Vancouver Craft Beer Week festival to try some of our award-winning student-brewed beer!
