About A Chat with Kwantlen Polytechnic University
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Kwantlen Polytechnic University's (KPU) Brewing and Brewery Operations Diploma is the only program of its kind in British Columbia and one of only three in Canada! With a custom-built, state-of-the-art brewery right on campus, KPU Brewing students gain critical skills and hands-on experience with equipment and technology, brewing science and recipe formulation, brewery systems and operations, product packaging and sales, branding and more. Our curriculum was developed in partnership with local craft breweries and the BC Craft Brewers Guild, creating a university diploma that uniquely prepares our students for a future in the exploding craft beer industry.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? The unprecedented growth of the craft beer market is creating a huge demand for knowledgeable, trained brewers with an education in brewing science. As a polytechnic university, KPU offers experiential learning and our Brewing and Brewery Operations Diploma program provides a unique combination of science, production, and hands-on experience!
What do you love most about your job? Seeing students from around the world with diverse backgrounds turn their passion for craft beer into a rewarding career. Almost 90% of our grads were offered positions before they completed their Brewing Diploma.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? From a student: "The KPU Brewing program took someone like me, who knew nothing about brewing, and in two years turned me into a brewer. With all the skills and knowledge I learned, I took over as the head brewer and brewery manager of a busy brewpub. I was hired before I even finished school!" TZ, KPU Brewing Diploma graduate. From a customer buying/tasting KPU-brewed beer: "Love these guys and their beer! The varieties they are trying are great!" Facebook fan; "One of the best beers at the festival!" various Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2016 attendees; "Favourite beer at the fest!" various BC Hop Fest 2016 attendees..
