This week I will be working with "The Good Beer Folks" at Steam Whistle Brewing, one of the few independently owned Canadian breweries around. They are located in the heart of downtown Toronto and apparently brew an incredible Pilsner (I will be sure to do some research and get back to you on that one). Elizabeth, who works in the marketing department at Steam Whistle, was really awesome to take time out of her Sunday to pick Ian and I up from the airport yesterday. She had a schedule all made up for the week and it looks like it is going to be pretty busy. I have heard only good things about Steam Whistle and everyone that works there, so I am really looking forward to the week and I am sure it will be a lot of fun.
Today I will be helping out with the tours of the brewery and then bartending tonight at an event sponsored by Steam Whistle. Throughout the week, I will also get to do some brewing, bottling, deliveries, sales... and of course probably the most important, remembering to take time for the necessary tasting to ensure quality control;)
We started filming for the first episode of One Week Job which will be coming out next week. We are currently looking for sponsors for each weekly episode - get all the details on our 'Show' page!
If you are in the Toronto area, I will be on Breakfast Television Wednesday morning talking about One Week Job and my week at Steam Whistle. Better yet, if you do live in Toronto, make sure to pop in to the brewery, say hello, and jump on a tour!
See you there!
