Overview

Diploma in Brewing and Brewery Operations

The Diploma in Brewing and Brewery Operations is a two-year diploma where students study the science, production and business of brewing craft beer. 

The program combines building a solid foundation in brewing science with hands-on practical learning in our state-of-the-art 2 hectoliter pilot brewery located on the Langley campus. 

The curriculum was developed in consultation with the BC Craft Brewers Guild and an Advisory Committee consisting on local brewmasters, brewery owners and industry experts.

Brewing applicants come from diverse backgrounds and prove to have more than just a passion for craft beer. 

They demonstrate interest in areas such as biology, chemistry, engineering, business, technology, and food.

Brewing is a physically demanding, hands-on career; Brewing students are expected to wear appropriate protective clothing and safety gear at all times inside the brewery and science labs.  

They should expect to work on their feet for 6 to 8 hours in what may be a hot or cold, wet, noisy environment and should be capable or lifting 25kg or moving 75kg.
