Women Brewing Up A Storm: Langley’s Sarah Maryschuk

As part of our International Women’s Day coverage, Beer Me BC is pleased to feature a story published on the Worthy community about Fort Langley’s Sarah Maryschuk, of KPU Brewing School and Trading Post Brewing.


Happy International Women’s Day!

The day was adopted by the United Nations in 1975 and today stands as a moment of celebration, freedom, power, courage, uniqueness, among many other wonderful attributes. In some countries, people find themselves amidst protests, fighting for their rights, still. Other countries simply bypass the day, not really taking note of it at all. Here in Canada, I’d like to say that we celebrate it (and we do on many levels) but the fact is that many people still don’t know about today at all!

Sparked by Unsplash’s International Women’s Day Project, we wanted to showcase a woman who is filled with the attributes above. Our choice seemed obvious, and we chose Sarah Maryschuk, our resident beer expert here in Fort Langley, British Columbia. And yes, if you are wondering, she is our actual sister.

We got to visit her on her final brewing day at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Langley and take some photos of her in the lab, brewing her final capstone project, which is a 5% Sour Pale Ale fermented with Norwegian Kveik yeast – a light and crispy beer that’s super tasty. If you’re local, come out to Trading Post Brewing in the Fort this Friday. It’ll be on tap all day and you can sit at the bar and enjoy some awesome bison tacos while you’re at it. Sarah can tell you something you don’t know about beer, the brewing process or restaurant management and you’ll leave with a full belly and a head full of new knowledge!

We had the privilege of asking Sarah a few questions about her experience in the brewing industry, why she’s passionate about creating an awesome guest experience, and what she is dreaming of for the future!
