Liquid gold is flowing at KPU Langley

Wed, Jul 15, 2015

Langley, B.C. – The taps are flowing at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s (KPU) instructional brew lab.

The first beer produced by KPU students and faculty from the university’s brewing and brewery operations program is finally ready, and ready to be sampled.

Free beer tastings will be offered at the Langley Community Farmers Market today (Wednesday, July 15) from 2-6 p.m.

The market, which takes place every Wednesday at KPU Langley (20901 Langley Bypass), was created by a group of farmers, agricultural experts, educators, food producers and retailers with a vision to bring a true farmers market to Langley, and increase awareness of and education on local food issues.

Next on tap for KPU’s brew program is registration for its second intake of students – which is currently underway – plus more tasting dates and growler sales.
