We are winding down from a very successful specialty coffee industry event weekend! This past weekend Bridgehead hosted the 2nd Annual Canadian National Brewers Cup, and the Annual Canadian Cup Taster’s Championships at the Bridgehead Roastery.
For news coverage of this past weekend, please go here.
Thanks to all who participated, as a judge, as a spectator, as a volunteer or supported in other ways! Thank you specifically to some of our own Bridgehead staff who participated as volunteers:
Chris, and Rachael from Fairmont (Canadian Cup Taster’s Logistics) Ryan and Sean from Albert (A/V and Brewers cup volunteers respectively) Randy, Brendan, Gavin, from our Roastery (A/V, Brewers cup, and gift swag bag assembly volunteers respectively). Ian, our coffee director who organized the cup tasters events Cliff our Roaster, who organized the brewers cup.
We had a lot of local volunteer support as well!
Congratulations goes out to first time competitors, Nicolas Ladouceur from our Preston location who competed in the Brewers cup and the cup tasters , as well as Brendan Butt from our roastery who competed in the cup tasters.
We held our own in a tough national field, and the Bridgehead community couldn’t be more proud of you both.
This was the very first time a coffee event (let alone a national one) has been held in our nation’s capital, and we are pleased to say Ottawa really did show those who came from out of town (from as far as Vancouver) how passionate, and welcoming we are as a local coffee community.
Please look for video footage going up in the next week or so on www.brewersandtasters.com.
Thanks for a great weekend!
