Half Pints Burley Wine Open House - Dec. 5th

**UPDATE, please see bottom of post**

Looking for something to do in Winnipeg this weekend? Half Pints Brewing Co. is holding their 4th annual Open House Burly Wine Day, this Saturday (Dec 5th).

Starting at 9am, brewery founder and brewmaster, David Rudge, will open the doors to the brewery to mark the release of their Burley Wine, a beer that was recently recognized in Ben McFarland's book World's Best Beers.

The brewery elves have been busy and have also bottled up a special Bourbon Burly Wine – beer aged with bourbon soaked oak chips. This special beer will only be available at the Open House.
Half Pints will also be raising money for Winnipeg Harvest, a non-profit organization who collect and share food with people who are hungry, so Rudge is encouraging people to bring along tins of food to donate. He is also raffling off a 'leglamp' (see picture) with all proceeds going to Winnipeg Harvest.

So if you find yourself in Winnipeg this Saturday, head over to the brewery, taste some fantastic beer and help a local organization collect donations.

Half Pints Brewing Company is Manitoba’s only independent, locally owned brewery. They produce four all malt beers year round (St. James Pale Ale, Bulldog Amber Ale, Little Scrapper IPA, Stir Stick Stout) and a rotating selection of specialty and seasonal brews for distribution across western Canada. Half Pints’ beers are available for sale at the brewery, in select vendors, and at all Manitoba Liquor Marts.
