The Program   

KPU's Brewing and Brewery Operations program is the only brewing diploma program of it's kind in BC — and of one of only three in Canada. Students will study the science, production and business of brewing in the University's custom-built, state-of-the-art brewery located right on the Langley campus. The curriculum, developed in consultation with the BC Craft Brewers Guild and brewmasters throughout the province, will involve learning brewing science with hands-on experience in the field. Students will explore the history of brewing, brewery equipment and technology, as well as brew house calculations and recipe formulations.
