EPISODE 27 – (PART 2) KPU Brewing & Brewery Operations


In part two of this three part series we sat down with Nancy More one of the people that built the curriculum for the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Brewing & Brewery Operations program.  She was also the very first Female brewer in North America.  Between the information about the program itself and her stories we found this audio quite compelling.

In part three next week we sit down with some of the graduates of the program and talk about the program and where they are now.

Part one of this series can be found here

Episode 15.5 The Lost Episode (Collaboration Podcast)

Back in May 2017 Pacific Beer Chat partnered up with Off Notes Podcast for a fun collaboration episodes where we discussed collaboration beers.  Unfortunately before part 2 could be released my hard drive died and I lost everything.  Just this week though I found the original footage.  The audio is not quite as good as it is coming from the Gopro camera and not our microphone but this episode is a blast and I wanted to release it anyways.

Click on this link to watch or listen to the original episode before consuming this one.  Episode 15.  This episode took place at 12 kings Pub in Vancouver.
