Wow! What a turn out! Thank you to everyone who attended, we are all so happy that this summer’s Project Brew was enjoyed by so many. Special thanks to April Tyrrell and Brianne Hawley for helping our class to make this event such as success! Congratulations to Corey Fairs and his , this semester’s winner of the Matt Soos Scholarship for creating the best beer out of our entire graduating class. We can’t wait for you all to join Niagara College in celebrating our next Project Brew on December 2, 2016; stay tuned for more information! Cheers!
Coming to us from Gatineau, Québec is Monsieur Jean-Francois Cardinal. JF, as he’s commonly known, is a brewer at Cassel Brewery in Casselman, Ontario, and enjoys listening to Folk Actuel du Québec and going cross-country skiing. During his time in southern Ontario, JF has learned many new things, including that at a party or at the beach, a tarp is not always necessary.
For Project Brew, JF will be pouring his Tarps Off! Party Pale Ale. Packed with grapefruit, peach and passionfruit hop aromas, this beer is light and refreshing, with just enough malt flavour to support the hop tsunami.
As promised, today we’re going to start revealing the student brews that will be showcased at our upcoming Project Brew event on August 12. (Tickets here!) Every day leading up to the event, we’ll tell you about a different beer, and a little bit about the brewer.
Today we’re introducing you to Ben, who’s from Indiana but we’re not holding that against him. Ben’s into Kurt Vonnegut and the Pacers, among other things. He’s brewed a Baltic Porter that he’s calling Captain Badass (you’ll have to come to our event to find out the story behind the name), a delicious beer that’s full-bodied and sweet, with a robust malt character. Ben’s eager for you to come give it a sampling on August 12!
Beer is a beautiful thing… at least that’s what we in Niagara College’s Brewmaster program believe. But it’s also a complex process — it takes time, and lots of hard work to get that finished product into your hands. On Friday, August 12, we’re hoping you can join us at Market Square in St. Catharines to help celebrate all the hard work we’ve put into our Project Brew beers. Want to know what’s on offer? Go here for a list of all the student beers being showcased. And get your tickets in advance (you’ll save 5 bucks!) by going here.
The pressure is building up to Project Brew on August 12 at Market Square in St. Catharines, so make sure to get your tickets in advance!
