BREWERIES & DISTILLERIES Hops, sours, radlers and gin—if you have a thirst, Winnipeg will quench it. Wet your whistle at one of the taprooms or distilleries below and we guarantee you'll have plenty to pour... ahem, pore over. Be sure to pick up some stylish merch while you're at it too. Barn Hammer Brewing 595 Wall Street • One of the original spots that made Wall Street so cool, Barn Hammer's handsome taproom features a nice patio outside and a brick interior that beckons. They are always hosting cool events—from drag shows to crazy beer release parties to countless fundraisers for local charities— while you can usually find up to 15 diverse varieties of beer in the taproom. Bernhard Wieland Brewing 121 Charles Street Bernhard Wieland's pet project within the Germany Society's SchnitzelHause is a real micro-operation. Here the veteran brewer (Little Brown Jug, Winnipeg Brew Werks and currently Brazen Hall) produces around 200 cans and eight different beers that are available weekly. Borusse fans will love the BWB can design. Brazen Hall Kitchen and Brewery 800 Pembina Highway • This always-busy restaurant brews on site with a range of beers that complement a great pub menu featuring award-winning burgers. There's plenty of live music outside on the patio in summer too. Capital K Distillery 1680 Dublin Avenue #3 • This multiple award-winning distillery by Jason Kang opened in 2016, taking the city by storm with its ultra- smooth vodka and gins. Its lineup now includes a range of flavoured vodkas and gins, while tours/tastings/cocktail classes are available via request. Dastardly Villain Brewery 726 Osborne (taproom set to open in 2023) Currently brewing within Torque, this brewery launched its first can on August 13, 2021, (a Friday, you guessed it) and has since expanded its offerings to include a number of audacious ales. Devil May Care Brewing Company 155-A Fort Street • Devil May Care's vibrant cans always stand out on the shelves, while their seasonal Tabula Rosa is one of our all- time favs. The brand new downtown taproom just opened in late 2022. Fort Garry Brewing Company 130 Lowson Crescent • Fort Garry has been brewing since 1930, with a number of different owners and parent companies during that time. It's once again locally owned and you can find its flagship beers and seasonal releases across the city.
