Hip to Hops, Langley

Langley residents are first in line to taste the next big thing in craft brewing–whether it’s hazy IPAs, session ales or sours–thanks to Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) Brewing and Brewery Operations Program. The program, which got off the ground in 2014, teaches the fundamentals of making and marketing beer and offers the only diploma of its kind in B.C. It’s a boon to budding brewmasters who want to hop into the craft-beer sector where opportunities abound, especially in small-town B.C. But it’s also a perk for locals who can drop in Fridays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. to taste student creations, tour the facility or fill a growler.
