Do you have gluten free beer?
We do not.
Depending on the style of beer, our products contain malted grain such as wheat, oats, and rye. Our mead does not contain any grain ingredients, however our brewing facility is not a gluten free zone and therefore we do not claim to have any gluten free products.
Do you sell gift cards or merch?
We sure do. Visit the taproom for all our retail items including: hats, t-shirts, toques, sweaters, insulated growlers, beer soap, glassware, and much more.
Can I make reservations or book a table?
No. We do not take reservations or book tables. We work on a first come, first served basis.
Our building occupancy is 50 people. We cannot accommodate large groups. This includes but is not limited to: Tour Groups, Party Buses, Wedding Parties, etc. If you are a large group, we recommend booking a private event when our taproom is closed to the public. You can find more HERE. Thank you for understanding.
Is your beer vegan friendly?
Most of them!
We use a product called Biofine instead of Isinglass.
Some beer styles we brew may contain lactose (Milkshake IPA, Milk Stout, etc). Please speak with a taproom staff member for details.

Is it normal for my beer to be hazy/have sediment?
Re: Hazy beer
Yes. It is perfectly normal and a common occurence for certain styles of unfiltered and unpasteurized beers to be hazy. For some styles of beer, the more haze, the better.
Re: Sediment in beer
Yes. Please do not be alarmed if you find there is a small amount of sediment at the bottom of a bottle or keg. The sediment is perfectly normal and safe, and in some cases it adds to the flavour of the beer.
When the bottles or kegs sit for an extended amount of time yeast and protein particles fall out of the liquid and end up at the bottom creating a thin layer of white particles, the sediment that you see.
Gently rotate the bottle prior to pouring. If sediment falls into glass, simply give it a gentle stir.

I forgot my credit card/ID in your taproom, what can I do?
It happens. Visit us at the taproom and one of our friendly staff will locate your card/ID.
If you forgot your credit card please bring a piece of photo ID to identify yourself.
Can I bring my dog into the taproom?
No dogs (or other furry friends). We love dogs, but Manitoba Health Authority prohibits them from being inside the taproom & brewery. To ignore this rule would be to violate a health code.
This rule is also applied to our patio as our permit requires patrons to enter our patio via our taproom building and animals are not allowed to enter our taproom as it is prohibited by Manitoba Health.
These are not our policies. These are rules & regulations set by Manitoba Health and we must follow them so we are not shut down for violating health codes.
We understand that some establishments may allow dogs, however every business & public building is different & different rules are applied based on building set-up, property, space, operating conditions etc. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Can I bring in my own keg & have it filled?
You can order kegs from us by filling out a KEG ORDER FORM
