    Beercast 004 – The Return of the Taprooms

    Beercast 004 – The Return of the Taprooms

    Spring 2021 sees the return of Manitoba brewery taprooms, as the Liquor, Gaming & Cannabis Authority will allow them to re-open.  However they have to play by the same rules as restaurants and beverage rooms.



    We quickly rip through the rules (prepare to have dinner at the taproom).



    Also, hats off to Devil May Care for their blog post, where they apologize for dissing pilsners all this time, and launch Brightwater New Zealand Pilsner.

    Episode 3 of the Beercast features an interview with Cody Lobreau of beercrank.ca.



    Cody started reviewing the beers at his local Liquor Mart in the golden age of blogging, and the Beercrank continues to be a great resource for Beerheads.  (It also features the best section on the web for non-alcoholic brews).



    The episode also features a quick squint at the re-opening of two breweries in Winnipeg under the Manitoba government's restaurant regulations.  Also, Brad sings the praises of Half Pints' classic coffee beer, Stir Stick Stout.

    Beercast 002 – Black Wheat Brewing

    Beercast 002 – Black Wheat Brewing

    Episode 2 of the Beercast answers the long-standing question: When the heck is Brandon getting a craft brewery?



    The answer is soon, as Black Wheat Brewing (www.blackwheatbrewing.ca) is starting to ship product into the Brandon market, and is putting the finishing touches on their 10th Street home.



    We talk to Ted Birch, part of the group spearheading the project, about the challenges of putting a brewery into a pre-existing building, and the importance of having a "lawn mower beer" in the product mix.  Also, a discussion on how post-COVID industry changes have made it a little easier to get your hands on your favorite craft beer, and another edition of "Beer in the Wild".

    Beercast 001 – “Be that Guy. Ask for local beer.”

    Beercast 001 – “Be that Guy. Ask for local beer.”

    Welcome to the first episode of the Beercast.  In the weeks to come, we hope to talk to folks in the industry about their passion, and talk about how to get your hands on the locally brewed beer that you love.



    After a wee bit of throat clearing, we kick off the Beercast with a reading for a blog post of mine over at beercrank.ca from 2020, called "Be that Guy. Ask for Local Beer". It's the closest this podcast will come to a manifesto. Think of it as a way of setting the table for the coming weeks.



    Also debuting this week is the first episode of "Beer in the Wild".  In hopes of getting more Manitoba beer to folks outside Winnipeg's Perimeter Highway, this feature will highlight vendors, stores, and bars featuring Manitoba brewed beers, as a way of building availability of the good stuff to the legion of Rural Beerheads.



    Follow us on twitter at @mbbeercast.  Post your sightings of "Beer in the Wild" and tag us in.
