2009 Flatlanders Beer Festival


Get this…belly up to an unparalleled selection of beers from around the world, drink your fill, and the whole time you’re doing Manitoba kids (if not your liver) a huge favour. In short, that’s what the Flatlander’s Beer Festival is all about.

Running September 16 – 18, Flatlander’s has been putting the fun in fundraising for seven years now. All proceeds go to the Manitoba Moose Yearling Foundation, a non-profit organization which raises money and provides grants to registered children’s charities in Manitoba.

On September 15, set your sights on a perfect primer at Luxalune. It’s 20 bucks for 20 samples of their extensive selection of suds. Then, on September 16, there’s the beer dinner, a $125 formal affair at Bergmann’s Deli on Lombard.

Finally, on September 17 & 18, from 7-10 pm, the Winnipeg Convention Centre plays host to public tastings of over 100 of the finest beers from around the world. Tickets are $29.95 and besides entry, get you 5 samples. Of course you can buy five additional samples at $4 a pop. And five more for another four…and five more….and five more…and oh jeez, call me a cab I gotta work in morning.

Drink a little, drink a lot, it’s bound to be good times and it’s all for a great cause so get your tickets now. Check out http://mtscentre.ca/flatlandersbeerfest/ for more information or click below for an alphabetical list of the brews you’ll be browsing.
