(The CN Tower of Sour)
Mike is originally from the small town of Dutton Ontario, which is roughly half an hour south-west of London. He lived and worked in Alberta for a couple years and it was while home for a cousin’s wedding that he became interested in the Brewmaster program. While talking to a friend that was in the program (Matt Soos) who eventually became employed by Muskoka Brewery, Mike quickly concluded living in cottage country working at a brewery sounded much more appealing than the oil fields. So he applied to the program and moved back to Ontario.
After finishing the program he hopes to work at a small Ontario brewery where he can hopefully be involved in multiple aspects of the brewing process. (QA/QC, cellaring, packaging, brewing etc. with less involvement on the sales side of things.
For his project brew, Mike is making a Gose, which is a sour German wheat beer.
