October 2015 | BCBA
October, 27 / 2015 |Prettech Canada salutes the dedicated craft brewers, where a total of 60 brewers gathered at the BCBA for an evening of awards celebration.
It’s amazing what a few pure ingredients like water, yeast, malt, and barley, mixed with a “whole lot of passion” and a little bit of “heavy metal”, stainless steel that is, can combine and create.
The flavor profiles totally amaze me. Flavors such as sours. smokey sours, bitters, hopped IPA, chocolate porters, and Irish red ales. All of the aforementioned beers have the 4 simple key ingredients needed, mixed with a whole lot of love for the craft. Prettech Canada has a few simple strategies to assist the crafters of these fine beverages. It’s simple AAA-grade stainless steel, crafted and designed to specifications with the fastest lead time in the marketplace for custom designed tanks. Add in outstanding prices to the lead time and we all have winning combinations. Prettech looks forward to assisting these craft brewers soon and seeing the brewers again at the 2016 BCBA next year.
October 2015 | Halloween
October, 21 / 2015 | October is a very special month for “Craft Brewers” that have a passion for the freshest ingredients, where some of the finest hop varieties on the planet are harvested with celebrities & celebrations around the globe.
Prettech Canada’s CEO Michael Chaplin has had the opportunity to taste some of the tasty Creations the Micro Craft Brewers have concocted, from perfectly balanced hoppy red Irish ales to rich robust stouts. Whether you’re a 5 hectoliter “nano-brewery,” or a 100 barrel micro craft brewer, when the ingredients hit the 304-grade stainless steel we are engaging the beer lovers from around our communities with local flavor fresh that celebrates the seasonal palate.
Late October brings Halloween, there’s nothing spooky about “mashing in”, some orange gourd for a little seasonal flavor. Prettech Canada would be pleased to assist the passionate novice or seasoned pro with any of their 304/316-grade stainless steel requirements.

October, 3 / 2015 | Oktoberfest at Prettech Canada is a salute to the “Masters of the Craft”. As people gather from around the world to enjoy the quintessential beverage of choice, they share in music & food for the 16 day’s of October.
Prettech Canada salutes Oktoberfest with “Ein Posit”, a German cheer to unite the world with thanks for this amazing tradition.
“Oktoberfest is the world’s largest […] beer festival and travelling funfair. Held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, it is a 16-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often simply called the “Wiesn”, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds (Theresienwiese) themselves. The Oktoberfest is an important part of the Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810”.
