The Labatt Beer Institute, which officially opened in Halifax on Wednesday, will train students on everything from the history of beer to how to pour it properly. "What I would have thought in my day is that there was very little about beer that the students didn't know," joked [Nova Scotian] Premier John Hamm. In fact, it is a serious course designed to help students taking the hospitality and culinary arts program. The classroom is a pub setting with 16 brews on tap.Having gone to the college the Premier did with the next generation of his classmates I would support his estimatation of the intellectual situation among Halifax college kids.
