Member's Story

Olds College Brewery is located at the north end of Old College campus in Olds, Alberta. Olds College has a 100+ year history in education supporting the agriculture and agriculture value-added sectors, so the idea of starting up a teaching brewery was seen by the board as a perfect fit! In 2012 Olds College began working with the Niagara College Teaching Brewery to create an Alberta based program. 

As a result of the Niagara partnership, a state of the art 2,000 square foot facility was created, dedicated to teaching students the art and science behind brewing the best beer possible. Olds' brewing equipment is tailored for small commercial production with six 1,000 liter commercial fermenters plus eight 100 liter pilot systems used for testing recipes and for niche brewing. The first student intake was in the fall of 2013 and Olds' began to produce its first commercial brews in January 2014.
