Niagara College opens teaching brewery

April 14, 2011

Wednesday marked the official opening of Niagara College's teaching brewery, the first of its kind in Canada. Based at the institution's Niagara-on-the-Lake campus, the 1,500-square-foot facility allows students to brew their own craft beer and gain hands-on training in beer making, sales management, and sensory evaluation. The teaching brewery includes a large scale system capable of producing 3,000 litres of beer, as well as a smaller pilot system that allows students to brew one keg at a time.
