We travelled to Medicine Hat today to meet up with Barry O'Neill Today, and boy was that worth the trip.
We spent the afternoon pouring over his beer relics and his outstanding collection of memorabilia. Everything from Alberta's first brewer, an NWMP officer name Thomas Ireland to the some amazing stories about the "Maverick of Alberta Brewing" Uncle Ben.
I don't know what was better; the stories, or his wifes home made turkey soup. They are an amazing and generous couple and I feel lucky to get to know them.
Stay tuned! There's more stories and interviews tomorrow.
