WINNIPEG, MB – Prairies-focused beer blog On Beer reports a brewery that has been in the works for three years will be opening to the public in Winnipeg this weekend.
Trans Canada Brewing has been founded by Matt Talman, a longtime homebrewer who started planning for the brewery in late 2014.
The ambitious facility features two brewing systems – a 35-hl primary brewhouse with eight 70-hl fermenters, a 5-hl pilot small batch system with six 10-hl fermenters – plus six 40-hl oak foeders for aging beer. There’s also a retail store and a 120-seat taproom, and food available from the on-site Timmy Tom’s Pizzeria.
Talman tells On Beer that head brewer Morghain Wielgosz has 12 beers ready to pour at opening, including “a witbier, raspberry ale, ISA, IPA, Double IPA, a couple of saisons and a Czech dark lager, just to name a few.”
The grand opening of Trans Canada Brewing will take place Saturday October 14th from 12:00 noon to 11:00 PM, and Sunday October 15th from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM. For more details, see the full article at On Beer, as well as the Trans Canada Brewing website.
