With their program facilities right around the corner, it was no surprise to see the Kwantlen Brewing Program set up shop at Langley’s Tip N’ Taste. What was a little surprising was just how good their beer was, in only their second year of appearing at the beer fest.
The Porter they offered may have been my favourite selection of the night and that’s amongst some very stiff competition. Perhaps it benefitted from being one of only a few dark beers available to sample, but the taste and quality of the brew can’t be denied.
I did try one of Kwantlen’s beers at the 2015 Tip N’ Taste, but wasn’t blown away by it. Clearly, the program is making strides in their development of beverages. Unfortunately, I can’t find much info on this product, but should the opportunity arise, I would endorse little sippers trying the school’s wares.
The program even allows beer sales to the public every Wednesday (12-6pm) and Friday (1-5pm) afternoon at their brewing lab. As a proud Kwantlen alum, I hope to get out there sometime for a growler fill in the near future.
