BUSHWAKKER AUGUST EVENTS CALENDAR

Aug. 1: Wednesday Night Folk. BRIAN VOLKE. Former Celtic Clutter frontman returns to Regina for a special homecoming performance. 8:00 PM. 

Aug. 2: IPA DAY! Join us as IPA fans around the world celebrate what has become the symbolic beer of the entire craft beer movement. Tickets to our August 2nd WEST COAST VS. NEW ENGLAND STYLE IPA BEER TASTING are now on sale! Evaluate eight special order hoppy brews and you decide the winning style. Will it be the old school, bold, piney and citrusy West Coast IPA team or the new world, hazy, juicy and tropical New England team? Only 50 tickets will be made available. $24.95 each. Don't miss out on our annual beer tasting event! Our kitchen will also be offering a tasty dining feature incorporating this iconic beer style as an ingredient.

Aug. 3: FIRST FIRKIN FRIDAY. Enjoy the pomp and circumstance of this long standing Bushwakker monthly tradition. A piper from the Regina Police Services Pipes and Drums leads a keg of special brew in a procession throughout the brewpub. A guest volunteer is selected to wield the handmade wooden maul affectionately referred to as The Mighty Firkin Wakker, and attempt to tap the firkin in one mighty blow. Hopheads rejoice! In acknowledgement of the IPA Day festivities taking place the previous day, the August firkin offering will be an AZACCA DRY-HOPPED IPA. The Azacca hop profile is described as being intense and tropical. Sustained impressions of citrus and very ripe mango, with notes of orchard fruit and pine needles. The delicious suds-soaking experience takes place at 5:30 PM.

Aug. 3 – 6: AUGUST LONG WEEKEND KEG EVENT. Receive free coasters, cups, ice and the use of a Bushwakker keg chiller tub and pump/faucet when you order any one of our four sizes of kegs for a long weekend. Place your order at least 24 hours in advance to avoid disappointment.

The Bushwakker is a proud partner of Parks Canada and Living Sky Winery this summer and will once again brew the extremely popular Motherwell Homestead commemorative brew. To acknowledge the fact that William Motherwell abstained from alcohol and preferred rhubarb tea, the Motherwell Red Fife Witbier will utilize the historic Red Fife wheat as well as rhubarb juice from Saskatchewan’s Living Sky Winery. Motherwell Homestead interpreters will be at the Bushwakker for a special Firkin Preview tapping. They will be wearing period dress, and will briefly describe the big Motherwell Threshing Day/Symphony Under The Sky event which will take place just outside of Abernethy, Saskatchewan on Saturday, August 25th where this unique Belgian-style wheat beer will be officially released. A limited number of commemorative bottles will be produced and made available on August 25th. The label will depict an original painting of the Motherwell Homestead drawn by Shannon Sambells who is William Motherwell’s great, great granddaughter. Makes a great Saskatchewan keepsake!
