Trading Post Brewing is committing $5000 over the next five years to the Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Brewing Lab for the next generation of craft brewers.
The scholarship is named after John Mitchell, who is known as the grandfather of the craft beer movement in Canada. He opened Canada's first modern day craft brewery, Horseshoe Bay Brewing, in 1982.
The scholarship may increase over the next five years. Trading Post will be hosting the first annual Fort Langley Beer and Food Festival this coming May 20 and have dedicated a portion of the proceeds from this festival for years to come to support this scholarship.
