- UPDATE: Sorry, but Brewtinerie didn’t happen. Who knows what the future will bring?
- EARLIER: Read our proposal to the city
Brewtinerie is an idea. It’s an interesting idea, it’s a popular idea, it may even be a good idea — but it’s an idea.
The idea is to take a vacant heritage building in downtown Brandon, a building that served for a 100 years as Brandon’s main fire hall, and turn it into a brewpub.
We want to bring brewing back to Brandon. But we also want to protect and celebrate a historic structure. And we want to keep it all downtown, truly Brandon’s hub.
The building is up for sale — and bids are due by August 31, so we have our work cut out for us.
We’re updating this site as much as we can, but we know that many of you have questions about our plans. Click below for answers to some of the more common queries:
