As you can tell I have neglected my blog goal to blog every monday :(. The reason for this is not a lot has happened over the weekend. The weekend at Canoe was okay I worked two short days because the wind was super strong, making people hesitant to sit outside. After those two shifts the weather stayed the same. One Wednesday I had beer school at Canoe it was awesome. Sean the Brew master is solely responsible for brewing all of Canoes beer. He had a PHD from I believe U-Vic and brew by the Purity Act of 1516. He puts on Brew School to teach anyone who works at Canoe more about brewing process. His Brewery is very neat , the storage unite where he stores the beer look like space ships. There are different vessels that the beer goes though depending on the stage . Example the first step of the process is melting the Wheat and the barely. The Sean transfers the beer though tubes. The interesting fact about this is he uses the natural pressure of the C02 to move the beer, which is rarely done. Everything he does is down to a science. Moreover, what's amazing about his beer is there are no fillers and everything is pure, he does not even pump extra C02 into the beer for added carbonation. Not only did we get the change to learn about the beer we also got to taste everything . I have had a couple beer tastings however I left Beer Schooling having more knowledge about the unique beer at Canoe as well as a little drunk .

The rest of the shifts this week have been the same , slow! Hopefully the weekend stays sunny and I will be able to work more shifts.
