Get your growlers filled at the KPU Brew Lab!
Open to the public on Fridays from 1-5 pm for growler fills, tastings & tours
Visit the KPU Brew Lab where the next generation of brewmasters are learning the art, science and business of craft brewing! Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) offers the only Brewing Diploma in BC — one of only three offered in Canada — and is the first Canadian institution to be recognized by the Master Brewers Association for a standard of excellence in brewing education. As well, our students recently won gold and silver medals at the 2017 US Open College Beer Championship, and we ranked second overall in North America.
Every Friday, we open our doors to the public for craft beer sales, complimentary tastings and guided tours*. We welcome you to stop by the KPU Brew Lab brewery on our Langley campus and check out what's on tap each week. Growler fills are just $10 for a 64 oz fill and $6 for a 32 oz fill (tax included). Bring your own growler or buy a KPU growler that you can reuse each week.
Proceeds from beer sales go back into the Brewing & Brewery Operations Diploma program to help support the students' education.
*Pre-registration required for tours. See 'Tours & Tastings' section below for details.
