Niagara College Teaching Brewery

The Niagara College Teaching Brewery is Canada's first teaching brewery, with a unique program that balances creativity and science to teach students about the brewing industry. Proceeds from our beer sales go back into the program and help students to further improve their brewing knowledge. We have a Growler Club where members have their own Club Tap, available exclusively to them! Along with a few other perks such as complimentary tastings, 25% off all store merchandise, complimentary or discounted seminars, a growler fill each month and more!
