The new semi-automatic keg washer is here from Specific Mechanical in Victoria, BC! Hooray for good beer and your support of it, because without you, there would be no Half Pints, never mind the keg washer. Quite frankly, its been almost 9 years and its about time we stopped manually washing them, cause it's heavy, ridiculously hot, back breaking work. Not to mention the fact that the growlers have been so busy, we can no longer save all the kegs for a Saturday to wash them.
This year's Manitoba intern/brewing student placement is Joshua Berscheid and he'll be starting on the brewery floor in a couple weeks. Joshua will be entering his 2nd year of brewing school at Olds College Alberta in the fall. Until then, he's going to get a full working of the brewery from delivery to designing and brewing his own beer.
Check the tweets and facebook, because we're hiring two positions. We're looking for a driver and someone with mechanical aptitude for the brewery floor.
