Soren – Something’s Brewing at Longwood Brewery


Vancouver Island is a place to visit for people of all ages. Join Soren as he tells us about some of his amazing adventures right here on Vancouver Island!

IMG_0085Mommy and Daddy drink beer, I don’t like beer it smells funny and it’s for adults only. They make lots of beer in Nanaimo, where we live and Daddy takes people on tours to show them how it’s made! Did you know that at Longwood Brewery their beer likes to ride in a hammock? So funny. Beer doesn’t belong in a hammock, it has to stay in the fridge!!

It was real loud in the beer making room. Everywhere you looked there were about shiny, clean tanks that I could see myself in! And there were water sounds everywhere, and beeping noises and “chhhhuuuuu” like a steam engine! IMG_0101I got to climb a great big ladder to look inside one of the shiny containers. It was dark. I got a little scared but Daddy picked me up so everything was okay. Then they showed me a machine that spins cans of beer around and puts lids on them. It was pretty cool!

The best part of the tour was the air plane! So small but it looked so real. I wanted to fly it all over ALL DAY but Mom said “don’t touch, it’s for looking only” I still don’t understand why I can’t play with that plane ALL DAY!IMG_0112

We filled up daddy’s great big glass beer containers from the big beer taps. I took them to the car to help Daddy out, but boy were they heavy! Luckily I am a big boy now, I can help with everything. My brother is a baby, he can’t help yet. One day me and my brother will be REAL BIG and we can drink beer with Mom and Dad. And go on waterslides. And rides at the amusement park. I can’t wait until I’m bigger!IMG_0121
