"I can remember them way back when," says Michael McBride of Storm Brewing in St. John's.
"We're obviously the tiniest brewery in Newfoundland, we might even be the smallest brewery in Canada," McBride
told The Sunday Independent.
Tucked away in a St. John's industrial park, the brewery is set up in a run-down blue and white building that McBride
describes as resembling anything but a brewery.Inside, the building is dominated by four large vats that look as if they were built by a shipwright because of the large wrought-iron bands that bind the strips of oak in place.McBride
hopes the rebirth of stubbys in the province will whet the appetites of beer drinkers and give the company a little more exposure.
"A lot of people don't even know we exist," says McBride
"For the most part, people were looking for something more along the lines of imports," McBride
says of Canadian beer drinkers' changing tastes.
