In Part 2 of our Winter issue cover story, we visit the @KPUBrew Lab and get to know how the program works. Let's face it: there is probably no other science department that has the built-in appeal that beer brewing does.
Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Brewing & Brewery Operations program was crowned champion at the BC Beer Awards in October 2019. In Part I of our Winter issue cover story, we look at what makes this story unique in Canada.
Penticton is quickly proving to be one of BC’s best craft beer towns, with six (soon to be 7) craft breweries. Excitement is percolating for the 25th annual Okanagan Fest of Ale on April 17th and 18th. Early bird tickets are on sale until January 15!
We've had a full year of beer and cider events under our belts. From panicked purchases of festival equipment to interesting encounters with patrons, it’s been a nutty but all-round solid learning experience for us.
As a homebrewer, I used to make saisons in the summer. I don’t have a temperature-controlled fermentation chamber, but saison yeast performs very well under fermentation temperatures as high as 35°C, so it worked for me. How times have changed! Now I can make a good clean ale at similar temperatures using the new miracle yeasts known as kveik.
