Pride Winnipeg and Half Pints Brewing Company raise a glass to Queer Beer

Pride Winnipeg will have its own unique flavour this year, thanks to a partnership with Half Pints Brewing Company. Queer Beer, an original, locally-made brew from Half Pints, is a patented drink conceived by the Pride Winnipeg committee.

Queer Beer is now available at Gio’s, Fame, and Club 200 as well MLCC stores at Osborne Village and Portage and Burnell. Proceeds from sales of the beer will be an ongoing source of revenue for Pride Winnipeg. Read more
