USask Alumni Week 2020: Hometown Happy Hour

As a former lawyer, alumnus Shawn Moen (LLB’05) took a leap of faith from professional practice into the craft beer game. His successful microbrewery, 9 Mile Legacy, is built on a sense of community and collaborating.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Moen once again pivoted and shifted much of his business model by creating a virtual online taproom.

We invite you to kick up your feet and gain insightful knowledge into 9 Mile’s most recent brews and learn what it takes to run a business during a pandemic, all from the comfort of your own home.
