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 when the MBAA ran a review of programs across throughout the US and Canada. 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 (USOCBC). KPU placed second overall in the 2021 USOCBC.
Recently, KPU Brewing students won awards in two more professional-level competitions: bronze in the 2022 Canadian Brewing Awards and bronze in the 2022 US Open 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 teaching brewery located on their Langley campus.
You can purchase KPU’s award-winning brews by stopping by the KPU Brew Lab on Friday afternoons from 1-6pm, where a selection of small-batch craft beers rotate each week.
