The Program   

KPU's Brewing and Brewery Operations program is the only brewing diploma program of its kind in BC and one of only three in Canada! Students study the science, production, and business of brewing in the University's custom-built, on-campus brewery equipped with a state-of-the-art NSI Newlands pilot system. The curriculum, developed in consultation with the BC Craft Brewers Guild and brewmasters throughout the province of BC, involves learning brewing science with hands-on experience. Students explore the history of brewing, brewery equipment and technology, packaging and sales, as well as brew house calculations, brewing chemistry, and recipe formulations.
