Named BC Brewery of the Year and Best Teaching Brewery in North America!
Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) offers BC’s only Brewing Diploma program, and is the only institution in Canada recognized by the Master Brewers Association of the Americas (MBAA) for a standard of excellence in brewing education. In 2019, KPU won Brewery of the Year at the BC Beer Awards and was named “#1 Teaching Brewery in North America” as the Grand National Champion of the 2019 US Open College Beer Championship.
In KPU’s two-year Brewing & Brewery Operations diploma, students learn the craft, science and business of brewing with hands-on experience in their state-of-the-art, custom-built microbrewery located on their Langley campus.
You can purchase KPU’s award-winning brews by stopping by the KPU Brew Lab on Friday afternoons, where a selection of small-batch craft beers rotate on tap. Every spring, second-year students develop and sell their own signature-recipe beers, offering a taste of the future of brewing.
The KPU Brew Lab is open for curbside beer sales only on Fridays from 1-6 pm. For more information on which styles are available each week, follow KPUBrew on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. They sell their beer in 6-packs of cans, kegs and $10 growler fills!
