VANKLEEK HILL, Ont. — Craft brewery Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company is commemorating its 10th birthday with the establishment of new annual legacy gifts for students in the Brewmaster and Brewery Operations Management program at Niagara College.
Beginning with the 2016/2017 academic year, the brewery will present three $1,000 awards and one $2,000 scholarship annually to students enrolled in the program.
“These legacy gifts are designed to inspire and help direct the promising future of craft brewing in Ontario and in Canada,” says Steve Beauchesne, co-founder and CEO of Beau’s. “They reflect the values that our fans and fellow brewers have come to know and expect from Beau’s over the last decade.”
The $1,000 awards will be given to level two students who have shown promise in brewing innovation in style, technique, or approach. The $2,000 scholarship, which is intended to promote diversity and equal representation, will be awarded to a student who is working with cultural, gender or health obstacles or opportunities that may affect his or her academic and career success in craft brewing.
The $1,000 scholarships will be awarded by faculty to students who meet the criteria. The $2,000 scholarship can be applied for through the college, with a deadline this year of September 30, 2016. Information about the scholarships and awards, including application details, will be made available here.
