Wow, Flatlanders’ was awesome. While I work on my post about that, I wanted to post a quick update about a couple of other things.
First, as the title suggests, the Manitoba Bartenders’ Guild has organized a self-guided brewery tour. It looks like it’ll be fun, the folks from the guild are pretty awesome, and I’m planning on attending as well. It costs $10 and you can get more details about booking a spot and the plan for the day by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. They also do things like this pretty frequently so join their Facebook group to be updated on future events.
A second piece of exciting information is that Barn Hammer’s beers (updated website, looking sweet) are finally starting to show up in restaurants around town. While they aren’t able to do growler fills yet, they are able to sell to licensees. Fools and Horses had the Saturday Night Lumberjack Double IPA on tap this weekend, and Earl’s is carrying Le Sneak Belgique Wit. The time to start enjoying local beer is now my friends. Hopefully this is the flood gate opening and we will see Torque and others coming out soon as well.
Finally, Flight #3 of the Liquor Marts Coast to Coaster event starts on Friday.
That’s it for today. I’m working on my Flatlander’s write-up which you should see soon and I’ll be trying to meet up with Torque, Brazen Hall and Oxus for updates in the near future. This is going to be a great summer. Grab a beer and enjoy it.
