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 recently launched our own growler club for members to get a hold of exclusive beers each month before they hit shelves. Along with a few other perks such as complimentary tastings, 20% off all store merchandise, semi-annual beer tasting nights, a growler fill each month and more!
