Passionate about beer. January 1, 2014

Why do it?

A lot has to be said for being able to create something you can truly enjoy. I homebrew because I am fascinated by the whole brewing process. The simplicity of the step, yet the amazing complexity that is possible.

Brewing started as a hobby and quickly became a passion. I intend on refining my craft over the years and enjoying the fruits of my labour with the people around me.

Stay tuned for updates to this website!

A brief history of Vancouver Island
(yes, that's where Victoria is)

Vancouver Island is a large island in British Columbia, Canada. It is one of several North American locations named after George Vancouver, the British Royal Navy officer who explored the Pacific Northwest coast of North America between 1791 and 1794. While the city of Vancouver is located on the North American mainland, Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, is located on the island. The island is 460 kilometres in length and 80 kilometres in width at its widest point. Vancouver Island is the largest Pacific island east of New Zealand, the largest island on the western side of North America, the world's 43rd largest island, Canada's 11th largest island, and Canada's second most populous island after the Island of Montreal.

Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia, Canada and is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada's Pacific coast. The city has a population of about 78,000 within the metropolitan area of Greater Victoria, which has a population of about 330,000.

Named after Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, Victoria is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest, with British settlement beginning in 1841. The city has retained a large number of its historic buildings, in particular its two most famous landmarks, the British Columbia Parliament Buildings (finished in 1897 and home of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia) and the Empress hotel (opened in 1908). The city's Chinatown is the second oldest in North America after San Francisco's. The region's Coast Salish First Nations peoples established communities in the area long before non-native settlement, possibly several thousand years earlier, which had large populations at the time of European exploration.

Isn't Wikipedia great??
