September 20, 2013

Western Canada’s first teaching brewery opened last week at Olds College in Olds, Alberta, in partnership with Niagara College. Together, the 2 colleges offer common curriculum and courses to prepare graduates for a variety of careers in the brewing industry. “We have 4 flagship beers that we are brewing,” explains Peter Johnston-Berresford, Coordinator for the Olds College Brewmaster & Brewery Operations Management Program, “but we will also have a number of limited release specialty beers that will be brewed throughout the year, each of which will give our students an opportunity to experiment with ingredients and create their own unique beers”. Olds College News Release
