About Olds College Brewery

The brewing industry in Alberta and Canada is growing rapidly. Customer demand has led to an explosion in the numbers of locally owned and operated craft breweries. The demand for locally produced brews has led to establishing the Olds College Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management program, and the Olds College Brewery and Brewery Retail Store.

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 a natural fit. In 2012 we broke ground on a state of the art 2,000 square foot facility dedicated to teaching students the art and science behind brewing the best beer possible. Our brewing equipment is tailored for small commercial production.

The Olds College Brewery Retail Store sells cans, bottles, bombers, growlers and kegs. Our beers are also available at leading bars, restaurants, and liquor retailers across central Alberta!

As a social enterprise we are not profit driven. All revenue from beer sales goes toward supporting education and in doing so, the brewing industry. Our only goal is to train the next generation right and to produce the best beer possible while doing so.

We produce all types of beer and train students in all beer styles, so we are constantly turning out new and creative seasonal brews in addition to our four "core" brands.
