Faculty
Brewing

EST. 2016 | Vancouver

An open-source brewery designed to educate and empower beer learners.

Faculty Brewing was founded by a husband-and-wife team: Maurico, a Food Engineer, and Alicia, an architect who designed the brewery. Mauricio moved to Vancouver in 2008 to complete his Master’s in Food Science at UBC, and later worked as a post-secondary instructor. It was that experience that led to the name and concept behind Faculty: the brewery is designed to educate and empower people with craft beer knowledge; Faculty shares information about the brewing process and even publishes all its beer recipes. Like a university or college, the brewery is meant to be a place of idea-sharing and collaboration — they work with other breweries and local home brewers to test new recipes and experiment with innovative ideas. Appropriately, Faculty’s Head Brewer, Jacquie Loehndorf, is a graduate of the Brewing & Brewery Operations program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Langley. 

Faculty’s beer names include a number system similar to how universities and colleges number courses by their level of complexity and expertise. Lower numbers indicate a more entry-level beer, while higher numbers are reserved for more experimental and boldly flavoured beers. The brewery, which recently merged with Oddity Kombucha, has a small tasting room and recently opened a patio.
