Tomorrow morning here at Half Pints we will be releasing this year’s Queer Beer. This Helles style brew will available at 9 a.m. for purchase, with the kick-off celebration beginning at 12 p.m. The kick-off includes samples in our tasting room and toasts and speeches around 12:30. The tasting room will be open until 4 o’clock, and as usual a brewery tour will run at 1.
This is the third year us Half Pints folks have been involved in the Pride Festival, and I love every minute of it. Nothing makes me happier than working with a small crew of open-minded, creative people. Oh, and drinking Queer Beer in the beer tent at the Forks on parade day…that makes me pretty happy as well. Hope to see you there!
A portion of proceeds from the sale of Queer Beer will be donated to Pride Winnipeg. The beer will hit store shelves at the following Liquor Mart locations next week: Portage & Burnell, River & Osborne, Hargrave & Ellice, and Grant Park.
