Niagara College Partnering With Olds College to Offer Brewmaster Training in Alberta

NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ON and OLDS, AB – Just a year after the official launch of its groundbreaking Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management program, the Canadian Food and Wine Institute at Niagara College has announced a partnership with Alberta’s Olds College that will see the program replicated on the Olds campus for students in Western Canada.

Under the new agreement, a project team from Niagara will be collaborating with Olds in developing a teaching brewery to be located in a hotel and conference centre currently under construction on the Olds College campus. Curriculum, courses, infrastructure and brewing equipment will be common to both locations, allowing for the partnership to continue once the Olds College program goes operational in September, 2013.

More information on the partnership is available in press releases issued yesterday by Niagara College and Olds College.

  1. I am really excited that my home province has a college hosting this program. We are obviously getting closer and closer to having an huge boom in craft brews for us Albertans to enjoy with our daily/nightly routines… Cheers!
