July 8: SECOND FIRKIN FRIDAY – BON VOYAGE BUSHWAKKER BREWER SPECIAL EDITION – THE FAREWELL FIRKIN. Because the first Friday of the month falls on the Canada Day holiday when we will be closed, we offer a special Second Firkin Friday. Enjoy the same pomp and circumstance complete with a piper from The Regina Police Pipes & Drums leading a small keg of specially created beer throughout the pub in a procession. A special volunteer will wield the hand-made wooden maul affectionately named The Mighty Firkin Wakker and attempt to tap the firkin in one mighty blow. Bushwakker head brewer, Mitch Dalrymple, has accepted a head brewer position at a new Alberta microbrewery so this will be his final firkin presentation. Be sure to stop by to wish him all the best. This particular firkin tapping edition will be so momentous, there may even be television cameras present! See you at 5:30!
