For the past three years, I’ve been fortunate to be a Craft Beer and Brewing Essentials instructor at Simon Fraser University. Last year, I was approached by North Island College in Comox to help build a new Craft Brewing and Malting program from scratch. The online courses start this September, three evenings per week (with the hands-on course moved to 2021). This means that anyone could take this year’s courses, not just local Islanders.

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 high standard of brewing education.
