Fanshawe announces new educational partnership with local brewery

London, Ontario - Fanshawe College and the Fanshawe Student Union (FSU) are pleased to announce a new educational partnership with Railway City Brewing Company in St. Thomas that will see students from its School of Tourism and Hospitality learn all aspects of the brewery business. Additionally, in celebration of Fanshawe’s 50th anniversary, the College is excited to announce the launch of a commemorative beer. Fanshawe Legacy Lager is a light gold lager with notes of sweet fruit and citrus, slight toasted spice, a hint of floral hops and a crisp and refreshing finish. It will be produced by Railway City Brewing.

The educational partnership will allow the hospitality students to travel to the brewery, located in St. Thomas, to learn everything about running the brewery business – from marketing and promotions to packaging and the brewing process.

"This is an amazing industry connection and partnership that reinforces in-class learning with real-life experiential learning," says James Smith, chair of the School of Tourism and Hospitality.

Fanshawe Legacy Lager features a hand drawn typographic Illustration created by Fanshawe graphic design student Andrea Ayala. With the artwork, Andrea joins custom illustration – a nod to the legacy we have behind us – with a more modern design approach. From sketches to the final product, it is a creative label that pays homage to Fanshawe’s 50 years. The beer is currently available on campus at Saffron’s Restaurant and the Outback Shack. It may also be purchased directly from Railway City Brewing in St. Thomas.

"As a small craft brewery, we take pride in building relationships in our community," says Paul Corriveau, vice president of sales and marketing at Railway City Brewing. "We're proud to be a part of this exciting opportunity – offering a unique and fun way to combine passion, education, creativity and skill and bring people within the community together to share our love of craft beer."

Continuing their studies in the brewery field, students in the Food and Beverage Management, Culinary Management, Baking and Pastry Arts Management, Hospitality and Tourism Management and Golf and Club Management programs will participate in the Prud'homme Beer Certification. The program is designed to further knowledge of beer products, with a focus on brewing ingredients and processes, tasting concepts, pouring and serving concepts, draught system basics and food and beer pairings.

The College and Railway City Brewing are working together to create additional educational partnerships that will benefit Fanshawe students.
