Durham College and its Office of Research Services, Innovation and Entrepreneurship held an official opening of the Centre for Craft Brewing Innovation (CCBI) at the Whitby campus in March. 

Consisting of a pilot brew line and brew lab, which were purchased using a $150,000 grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, the CCBI offers craft brewers access to expertise and state-of-the-art technology, as well as micro-analytical and research services.

“We are very excited about what the centre offers craft brewers,” said Chris Gillis, manager, Applied Research Business Development, ORSIE. “There is so much potential to further innovate by refining brewing methods and recipes, as well as increasing technical knowledge and skills within the industry.”
