This fall, Olds College began its Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management Diploma. In its first year, 26 students enrolled and are on their way to developing a heightened palate and learning how to make beer from start to finish.

The program will feature a mix of hands-on work and time in the class- room. The brand new brewery is attached to a new hotel, where beers made by the students will be served in the restaurant and lounge.

Alberta Barley has made a five-year, $25,000 commitment to the brewing program. Here are some shots of the beer-brewing hopefuls in action.
