Cape Bre­ton Univer­sity: What­ever Hap­pened To ...

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

CBU Alum­nus: An­drew Mor­row Job Ti­tle: Com­pany co-founder Em­ployer: Bre­ton Brew­ing Com­pany CBU Ed­u­ca­tion: BSc ’06 Cur­rent Lo­ca­tion: Syd­ney, N.S. Home­town: Syd­ney, N.S.

When en­ter­ing the bach­e­lor of science pro­gram at Cape Bre­ton Univer­sity, An­drew Mor­row didn’t ex­actly plan on hav­ing a ca­reer in the brew­ing busi­ness, but he says that CBU and the science pro­gram have cer­tainly given him a great foun­da­tion for do­ing just that.

“The de­gree I re­ceived from CBU ap­plies ex­tremely well to the brew­ing in­dus­try,” said Mor­row. “Whether al­ter­ing wa­ter chem­istry for the mash, ad­just­ing tem­per­a­tures for spe­cific enzy­matic ac­tiv­i­ties, or har­vest­ing yeast for fu­ture use, my ed­u­ca­tion is al­ways com­ing into play.”

He also adds that the abil­ity to work hands-on with many pro­gres­sive tech­niques while study­ing at CBU has helped him see the world of science in a whole new light.

Mor­row and his busi­ness part­ner, Bryan Mac­Don­ald, opened their new com­pany Bre­ton Brew­ing Co. with a soft launch two weeks ago and are very happy with the feed­back they have re­ceived so far.

Mor­row cred­its CBU for al­low­ing him to re­ceive a first-class ed­u­ca­tion while re­main­ing close to fam­ily and friends, and now, al­low­ing him to have the ex­pe­ri­ence and con­fi­dence to be­come an en­tre­pre­neur in his home­town. SUB­MIT­TED
