UBC Brewery gets the go ahead

UBC will finally be getting its own  micro-brewery. The micro-brewery was originally planned at the new student union building (SUB) that is currently under construction. However, it was decided that moving the brewery to the UBC Farm is a cheaper solution.

Building the micro-brewery in the SUB will cost $410 per square foot, while it will cost only $350 per square foot on the UBC Farm. The UBC Brewery is slated to open in 2017.
