Mr Fungi Chaga Black Lager Explained

You may be thinking mushroom beer…. that’s strange.

Mr Fungi Black Lager doesn’t taste like the mushroom soup you might be picturing in your head; it taste like a black lager with a notes of Chaga, a complex earthy/coffee/mocha flavour. The goal with our black lager was to use Chaga, a locally foraged superfood, to impart colour and flavour for an interesting and complex subtle Chaga taste in our black lager. The result is a delicious black lager with earthy/coffee/mocha notes from the Chaga. Try it and see what the flavour is yourself (we recommend it be your first beer of the session as the flavour is subtle).

Here is a photo of the locally foraged Chaga that we used to infuse into the black lager and a photo of the poured beer and can courtsey of Beermebc.com:

                    [post_content] => In honor of Remembrance Day, we have expressed our respect and tribute with in-store signs and displays, but we wanted to reflect for a moment on the meaning and history of the day.

What Remembrance Day Is All About

Did you know that Remembrance Day is a memorial day that member states of the Commonwealth of Nations observe? They do this to celebrate the end of the First World War, and to remember those in their armed forces who fought in the line of duty.

Why The Red Poppy On Remembrance Day?

The red remembrance poppy became a popular symbol of Remembrance Day after a professor at the University of Georgia, Moina Michael, wrote a poem called "We Shall Keep the Faith" and swore to wear a red poppy on the anniversary. This symbol spread across to Europe and other countries like those of the British Empire and Commonwealth within just a few years.

Our Springs group Remembrance Day Signs

In memory of all the brave men and women who protected us during that time, we honor you. We hope you have a peaceful Remembrance Day

Getting The Most Out Of The Career Fair

If you're looking for a new career at the career fair, here are some tips to get the most of your experience!

Research Positions You Are Interested In

Doing some preliminary research on the possible positions that you may be interested in is the first step. This will ensure you know what to expect at the career fair, as well as help you know what to focus on in terms of resumes & applications.

Prepare Resumes, and Be Prepared To Apply Too

If you find a few top positions that you know you want to apply for, don't waste time! Preparing a resume prior to the career fair will show well. This will make sure that we have your contact and work history information in front of us ASAP too.

Prepare Questions & Answers for Our Recruiters

Saying "hi" and giving your resume is great, but you will have a more profound impact if you are able to have a conversation with the recruiters. This is why preparing questions to ask and preparing answers to potential questions they may ask is a great idea!  

Other Suggestions for The Career Fair

The above tips will give you a solid foundation for a great career fair, but if you're looking to really stand-out see our other suggestions below!

Engage with Our Recruiters

One way to leave an impact with the recruiters is to ask and answer questions with them, but if you're really looking to be remembered, a great strategy is to connect and engage with them even further. Do your best to get to know the recruiters a bit, and find ways in which you can engage with them in other ways.

Bring Material to Give to Our Recruiters

A resume is a great piece of material to hand-out, but don't be afraid to bring more material to hand-out too. This could include upgrading your resume to something more unique, handing out business cards you may have, examples of past work you've created (portfolio), and more.

Follow-up with Recruiters ASAP After the Event

Now that you've met with our recruiters, maybe given them your resume and/or applied to a position, and possibly even connected and engaged with them-- it's time to follow-up! This will show the recruiters how interested you are, your follow-up abilities, and will ensure recruiters remember you too. job-fair-back-of-house-opportunities
