Editor’s note: This edition marks the one year passing of Bushwakker co-founder and president, Dr. Beverly Robertson. This past year has seen much reflection amongst Bushwakker management where we found we were often asking ourselves, “What would Bev do?” when faced with a new situation. We have experienced validation time and again when adhering to the governing principals Bev had instilled in our company philosophy from day one. In 2018 we have continued to see much success and fulfilment both in business and in giving back to the community we serve. The following article is a few years old but is still a testament to the pioneering work Bev provided in creating our province’s vibrant craft brewing culture; a culture to be embraced and celebrated!
