REGINA – A local brewpub has earned top honors in Canada for one OF its six original beers.
Bushwakker Brewpub’s Regina Pale Ale took home gold at the 2014 Canadian Brewing Awards for the best English Pale Ale in the country.
The beverage was first brewed in August 1990 in preparation for the establishment’s grand opening in January 1991.
Mitch Dalrymple, Bushwakker BrewPub’s head brewer, credits Regina Pale Ale’s homegrown flavor for standing out above the competition.
“It is nice for the local beer community. They just wanted a name that said something about where we’re from and what we’re about,” Dalrymple explains. “We’re very community minded, so Regina Pale Ale, how much more community does it get?”
Bushwakker BrewPub earned another gold back in 2011 for its single-malt scotch-infused Russian Imperial Stout, called the Tartan Tzar.
