A Note from the Chris’ Fire! Not a great start to my trip to British Columbia to launch Legion Lager (more on that next month). I received a call that I hope to never receive again, “there has been a fire at the brewery”. At that point we did not know the extent of the…

A Note From the Chris’ On the Twelfth Beer of Christmas It’s the time of year where for some, it’s the quiet before the storm.
