Behind the Scenes @ CBC (part 1)

Welcome to Behind the Scenes @ CBC! This is the first of many blog posts providing our fans a sneak peek at what’s brewing at the pub, the tasting room, the brewhouse and more.

Don’t come here expecting corporate jargon, mission statements and marketing-geared prose—I’m a terrible writer with no grammar skills to speak of (I even misspelled grammar before this got edited).
