The club will break for the summer but will reconvene on Wednesday, September 7th.
June 3: FIRST FIRKIN FRIDAY. Enjoy the pomp and circumstance as a piper from the Regina Police Services Pipes & Drums pipes a small keg of specially created beer throughout the pub. A volunteer is selected to tap the firkin and a suds-soaking display is often the result.

June 16: 2016 JAZZFEST REGINA Bushwakker Performance – BLUE MOON MARQUEE. 7:00 PM. The biggest night of the year for live jazz at The Bushwakker! Blue Moon Marquee is a self-styled gypsy blues band influenced by old delta blues, swing, jazz and ragtime. A.W. Cardinal howls with a smoky vocal while playing a jazz tinged blues guitar. Jasmine Colette commands the upright bass but also keeps the swing with both feet while singing harmonies. Blue Moon Marquee’s passionate performance and smouldering onstage chemistry is their trademark, and the way Colette’s angelic tones lift A.W.’s beaten down “bukowski-esque” mystique is something that enthralls audiences from the back room bar to the public square. Rush seating tickets are $12 advance and $15 at the door. Available at the Bushwakker and Bach & Beyond. www.bluemoonmarquee.com.
June 17: REGINA GLOBE THEATRE 50TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE BEER LAUNCH. 5:30 PM. Although Bushwakker is celebrating a quarter century of service this year we certainly tip our hat to the Globe Theatre who also faced difficult challenges in the early years but has grown into a provincial treasure. After extensive interviews and research into the half century old theatre the Berry Dramatic wheat beer will be released in fine fashion with artistic director, Ruth Smilie, tapping a ceremonial firkin to officially launch the commemorative brew’s release. Made with three standout ingredients, local Saskatoon berries, wheat and barley, these key ingredients symbolize the three artistic director teams the Globe Theatre has employed. No small feat! Only 250 bottles of the Berry Dramatic Ale were produced. Be sure to get your keepsake bottle celebrating a true Saskatchewan cultural treasure!
June 20: Monday Night Jazz & Blues. ‘ROUND MIDNIGHT. Popular act plays great jazz and adult contemporary tunes. 8:00 PM.
June 22: Wednesday Night Folk. BECKY & THE JETS. Upbeat classic folk hits. 9:00 PM.
June 23: SCIENCE PUB – Navigating Science and Evidence in Contentious Policy Debate. Presented by the University of Regina Faculty of Science and The Bushwakker Brewpub. Our wildly popular monthly Science Pub Series has returned and promises to be even better than before. The programming will start off slowly but will develop so that a larger segment of the university will be involved to make the revitalized Science Pub even bigger and better! Enjoy lectures on scientific topics of general interest in our Arizona Room (main floor banquet room) over beer and snacks. The room opens at 5:00 PM and quite often is full by 6:00 PM. Avoid disappointment and come down early for dinner and a pint before the presentation which begins at 7:00 PM. Science Pub will break for the summer and return in September. This month’s lecture is entitled: Navigating Science and Evidence in Contentious Policy Debate. Presented by Dr. Loleen Berdahl from the College of Arts & Science at The University of Saskatchewan and Dr. Maureen Bourassa from the Edwards School of Business, University of Saskatchewan. While there is considerable interest in the idea of evidence-based policy, the inclusion of science and evidence in policy debate is not always smooth, particularly when the policy issue under consideration is contentious and/or involves risk. In this lecture, University of Saskatchewan researchers Dr. Loleen Berdahl (Political Studies) and Dr. Maureen Bourassa (Marketing) consider how the myriad actors within policy debate may differ with respect to what evidence is viewed as appropriate for policy decision-making, and discuss key factors that should be considered when communicating information to diverse audiences. They also examine the roles of emotion and cognition in risk perceptions, and raise what it means to foster respect in policy debate.
June 27: Monday Night Jazz & Blues. HOODOO. Young new blues act lead by guitarist, Ethan Reoch. 8:00 PM.
June 29: Wednesday Night Folk. RON LOOS. Pop covers from this talented guitar plucker. 9:00 PM.
