Brewmaster program takes off at Olds CollegeThis 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.
