Get your growlers filled at the KPU Brew Lab!
Open to the public on Fridays for growler fills and tastings
Open Fridays 1-6 pm | 20901 Langley Bypass | KPU Langley Campus
Visit the KPU Brew Lab where new brewers 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 and only Canadian institution to be recognized by the Master Brewers Association for a standard of excellence in brewing education. As well, the program was named top brewing school in North America at the 2019 US Open College Beer Championship where our students won two gold medals and one silver this year. KPU Brewing also won multiple awards at the 2019 BC Beer Awards (BCBA) and took home the top honour as the BCBA BREWERY OF THE YEAR.
Every week, we feature our small-batch craft beers on tap, offering growler fills, complimentary tastings and guided tours*. The beer menu at the KPU Brew Lab changes weekly, so we highly recommend you follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts (@KPUBrew) for the latest selections on tap, as well as upcoming events and any changes to our opening hours (e.g., stat holidays, special events, closures, etc.).
*Pre-registration required for tours. See 'Tours & Tastings' section below for details.
