Olds College Brewery
Olds College had its beginnings in 1913 as the Olds School of Agriculture and Home Economics. Since then, it has expanded to cover several areas of study, and one of its most recent additions is the Olds College Teaching Brewery. Established in 2013, the brewery hosts Olds College’s Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management program, which leaves students with brewing industry expertise after two full time years of study. Olds College is already the proud recipient of the 2014 “Rookie of the Year” award for their Pecan Brown ale, and hopes to continue growing and expanding.The Olds College Brewery produces four ales – Hay City, Aggie Ale, Prairie Gold, and Old Skhool, as well as two rotating seasonal beers. With so much variety, there’s something to satisfy every palate. The proceeds from all of Olds College’s beer sales help to support the educational program, and some revenue also goes to support organizations like the Pink Boots Society. Each beer is produced with Alberta-grown malt and barley, and much of the hops used by Olds College is also grown locally. Olds College is dedicated to tirelessly training Alberta’s next generation of brewmasters while also supporting Alberta producers, microbreweries, and not-for-profit organizations – as well as producing great-tasting beer. Olds College beers are available for purchase in several Olds and Calgary locations.
