REGINA, SK – Bushwakker Brewpub in partnership with Parks Canada has announced that a beer brewed last summer to honour a local historic attraction is back again for another year.

Motherwell Red Fife Witbier is named after and inspired by the Motherwell Homestead, a National Historic Site south of Abernethy that preserves the agricultural lifestyle of the early 1900s in commemoration of William Richard Motherwell, a local politician who served as agriculture minister in both the provincial and federal governments of the time.

The Belgian-style wheat ale has been brewed with Red Fife wheat, an historic strain that has been revived in recent years and is rarely used in beer making.

A preview firkin of Motherwell Red Fife Witbier will be tapped at Bushwakker today (Friday August 19th) at 5:30 PM, with representatives from the Motherwell Homestead on hand in period dress.

The official launch will follow on Saturday August 27th at the Homestead as part of a day of celebrations that will include Threshing Day, a Field to Fork Festival, a Symphony Under The Sky performance by the Regina Symphony Orchestra, and more.
