WINNIPEG, MB – Half Pints Brewing will be holding this year’s edition of their annual Burlywine Day open house on Saturday, December 5th, 2009.
As the name suggests, the day marks the release of their annual winter seasonal, Half Pints Burlywine, and the 2009 vintage will be available for sale and sampling at the brewery. In addition, a limited number of bottles of the 2008 vintage will be available, along with the equally limited Bourbon Burlywine, which is the 2008 version aged on Bourbon soaked French oak chips.
Half Pints is also encouraging all attendees to “bring a tin for the bin” in support of Winnipeg Harvest food bank, and there will be tours and giveaways throughout the day.
Following the launch, Burlywine 2009 will be available at select liquor stores and bars in Manitoba, as well as a few out-of-province locations.
