|100 Mile Fire Base|
|The base whiteboard. It's good to be back|
Now for all of you who have never heard of 100 Mile, or have merely driven through it, (and I'm sure you're many) it's not exactly a cultural hotspot. For example, the talk of the town last summer was that a McDonald's might be opening in the near future, a rumour that sadly proved to be untrue. However, Hundo (as it is known to locals) is hardly a stagnant place, as the addition of a new traffic light this year proves, bringing the town's grand total to four. Despite this rapid progression, 100 Mile is not quite the beer town Victoria is. In part due to this, this blog will change somewhat until I return south in September. My homebrewing efforts will unfortunately be on hold until the Fall. There may also be some longer stretches without posts, especially if this fire year turns out to be as bad as the last two summers. I hope you'll stick with me through these changes, valued reader, as without you this blog would be nothing. I will continue with reviews and I have a good supply of new beers from my recent trip to Portland stashed in my van to make this happen (Did I mention I live in my van up here? Don't worry, I don't stay down by the river). For your enjoyment I will also be writing a series of "Beer Scene in 100 Mile" posts to fill the gaps, and to properly get across some of the quality of the 100 Mile experience. So until next time I hope you'll stick with me, and don't fret, Basement Breweries will be back in full brewing force before you know it.
