Who is Barn Hammer Brewing Company?
We are a new local brewery & Winnipeg’s first taproom (tasting room) located at 595 Wall Street in Winnipeg’s vibrant West End.
We’re a very small company (less than 10 of us) and we like it that way. We plan to remain small, local and always friendly.
Our brewing goal is to remain approachable but to continuously incorporate unique flavours & styles to our line-up. As Winnipeg’s first taproom/tasting room we hope that our brews are diverse enough to appeal to those new to craft beer scene and to also satisfy the seasoned taste-buds of experienced home-brewers.
What is the name all about?
We all have at least one funny story that we share with our families, and this is one of those stories.
Tyler’s family cabin is located on Lee River on a beautiful old farmstead. Sitting near the back edge of the property was a very old & rotting barn. One weekend, Tyler’s father decided that it was time for the barn to go, even though he didn’t quite have the right equipment for the job…he went for it anyway and rigged up his ill-equipped Dodge Journey for the task. To sum things up, it was a failed venture which left the barn sitting askew. Afterwards, family & friends started sarcastically referring to the Dodge Journey as the “Barn Hammer”.
We hope that after people hear the story behind the name, it makes them smile, or reminds them about a funny story that they share with their family & friends.
