    Hey there,

    Next month I'll be flying out to Saskatchewan and landing in Saskatoon. I'll be in the city for only one day as I'll be heading further up North after. Looking for suggestions on any of the good breweries or brew pubs to check out. I've looked up a few spots, but I figured I would ask around here too.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    High Key Brewing and 9 Mile Legacy Brewing both places are great.

    For what it's worth, these SK beers won medals at this week's Canadian Beer Awards:

    Beer: Sundog
    Brewery: Churchill Brewing Company

    Beer: MacGregor’s Wee Heavy
    Brewery: Bushwakker Brewing Company Ltd

    Beer: Folklore Imperial Stout
    Brewery: BLACK BRIDGE BREWERY

    Beer: Brewhouse Pilsner
    Brewery: Great Western Brewing Company

    Beer: IPA!
    Brewery: BLACK BRIDGE BREWERY

    Beer: District Lemon Ginger Radler
    Brewery: District Brewing Co

    Highly recommend Rook & Raven for good craft beer list and great food. Winston's has a huge selection of SK craft beers but it's also the hangout for conventioneers so can get pretty loud and crowded.

    Have fun!

    We (Rebellion Brewing) just won a World Beer Cup award as well.

    Winston's is definitely the best one stop shop to try as many SK beers as possible. They are also home to 21st Street Brewery, which is located in their basement.
