Real college beer now available!
Written by Brady White on April 23, 2014 in The Beer Diaries
The Olds College Teaching Brewery has been offering a Brewmaster and Brewing Operations Management program to students since the fall of 2013, in the town of Olds, northwest of Calgary. It is a tw0-year course, which aims to educate students in the technical and scientific aspects of brewing craft beer, as well as in the marketing and business side of things, essential to getting that beer into prospective customers’ glasses. Keen-eyed Alberta beer enthusiasts have started to notice this student brewery’s initial offerings beginning to trickle onto the market – the big craft beer establishments, such as Craft Beer Market and Beer Revolution providing their support and tap handle space. Also, a collaboration brew among Olds College and two Calgary breweries – Big Rock and Tool Shed – as well as Calgary indie coffee roaster darling Phil & Sebastian, was released in the past few days. Looking forward to trying some of these products soon!
