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 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.
