In 1982 Mitchell stood up for good beer and did something important--something that's changed our beer culture in Canada. By questioning established norms in wanting to brew his own beer, John Mitchell started a fight he thought he'd never win--a fight against corporate beer, big money, and politicians. But with luck and timing on his side, Mitchell won a small provisional victory and inadvertently spearheaded a new beginning for local beer on a national level. John Mitchell is now looking to open a legacy brewpub that represents his ideal brewing and culinary experience -- the historic fight that changed beer in Canada. But depending on who you talk to his fight may have had bigger implications than meets the eye. It also begs the question, what will be the legacy of John Mitchell?
