With an expected crowd of 4000, the third annual Fort Langley Beer & Food Festival will be the biggest one yet...and it's where a number of anticipated Langley breweries will become debutantes at their first public beer fest.
Today, Five Roads Brewing Co. becomes the first of a wave of new craft breweries coming to Langley BC. Located only a few blocks away from pioneering Langley brewery Trading Post Brewing, Five Roads is set to become an integral part of a growing Langley brewing hub.
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.
The Brewing and Brewery Operations diploma program launched at the KPU Langley campus in 2014. As the BC craft beer industry rapidly expanded, so did the need for qualified, well educated staff. In 2013 KPU responded to this need by putting together an industry advisory council with the intent of not only providing a option for education in BC but also to develop a curriculum that met the specific needs of the local industry. Building a state-of-the-art brewery on campus was essential for the program to provide a place for the students to develop hands-on skills in addition to academic theory during the two year program.
