About the Program
KPU’s Brewing and Brewery Operations program is the only brewing diploma of its kind in BC and the first brewing program in Canada to be recognized by the Master Brewers Association for offering a standard of excellence in brewing education. Students study the science, production, and business of brewing craft beer.
The program combines building a solid foundation in brewing science with hands-on practical learning in our state-of-the-art, two-hectoliter pilot brewery located on KPU’s Langley campus.
