Craft Beer and Brewing Essentials

Turn your passion into a career

Craft brewing has exploded into a multi-million dollar industry as national beers decline in popularity and craft brews expand. The increasing popularity of craft beer is about so much more than taste. It’s an art form, a science, and a delicious business opportunity.

B.C.'s market share for craft breweries more than doubled in recent years, and dozens of new breweries have opened in Metro Vancouver. This means craft breweries are looking for talent.
