Head shot of Daniel.

"U of G helped me learn a lot of the foundations of the agriculture industry. The flexibility of my program also played a huge role. I was able to take a variety of courses, for example apiculture and honey bee biology, where I learned quite a bit about beekeeping and honey. I now use honey in some of the beers we make."-Daniel MacKinnon, Brewmaster
