My name is Cameron and I’m happy to be here. New to having enough money and space to invest in good gear so I’m quite excited to get started :)

:welcome:
"Twenty years ago — a time, by the way, that hops such as Simcoe and Citra were already being developed, but weren’t about to find immediate popularity — there wasn’t a brewer on earth who would have gone to the annual Hop Growers of American convention and said, “I’m going to have a beer that we make 4,000 barrels of, one time a year. It flies off the shelf at damn near $20 a six-pack, and you know what it smells like? It smells like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree.” - Bell’s Brewery Director of Operations John Mallet on the scent of their popular Hopslam.

Welcome! And now I’m curious about the Ottawa egg rolls vs East Coast ones. I know ours are “interesting”, tell me about Ottawa’s! I thought we had decent shawarma, but am willing to learn, too! 🍻

Overall, Ottawa has better food (SOOOO SORRY it's because it's a big city) but Halifax is better overall :cheers3:

Update on me one year later (and a bit):

I now have good gear! Just *kegged* my first beer and OHHHHH is it delicious that was definitely a game changing upgrade thank yoouuuu marketplace :) still loving life in lower sackville with my wife and four kids, I'm 30 and looking forward to my first homebrew event whether it's an exchange (christmas advent calendar 2022?) or something else. Cheers all!

with the border no longer and issue, halifax is starting to feel normal with family being able to visit.

Glad the kegging went well. Looks like a nice system. It's definitely a game changer when switching from bottles!
