Bushwakker Releasing Commemorative Beer for Motherwell Homestead


REGINA, SK – Bushwakker Brewpub in partnership with Parks Canada has announced the upcoming release of a beer brewed to honour a local historic attraction.

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 that is rarely used in beer making.

A preview firkin of Motherwell Red Fife Witbier will be tapped at Bushwakker on Friday August 21st at 5:30 PM, with representatives from the Motherwell Homestead on hand in period dress.

The official launch will follow on Saturday August 29th at the Homestead as part of a day of celebrations that will include Threshing Day, a Field to Fork Festival, and a Symphony Under The Sky performance by the Regina Symphony Orchestra.
