BUSHWAKKER “NEW NORMAL” NOTES
We are currently open Monday to Saturday at 11:00 AM and close at 10:00 PM. Kitchen closes at 9:00 PM. We are still closed on Sundays at this time. We are very appreciative of the considerable increase in the number of our takeout food orders. Call us at 306-359-7276 or visit our online ordering page at https://bushwakker.com/shop-2021/
We appreciate your business very much! Due to our reduced seating capacity, we ask that customers limit their dining time so as many people as possible can comfortably enjoy our Real Saskatchewan Brewpub Experience, especially if we have a line-up! Thank you for your co-operation. Because we do not have many tables to spare for customers to use while they wait for their takeout orders, we kindly ask you place your orders ahead of time by calling us at 306-359-7276 or ordering online so that we can have your order ready upon your arrival. We have added additional waiting spaces in our back common area. Just stand on a red “X” and we will bring your takeout order to you as soon as it is ready. We also can provide curbside pickup. Just let us know when you will be arriving at out back door and we’ll run it out to you.
We ask that our customers do not alter the position of our tables. We are required by the Saskatchewan Health Authority to have our tables placed two meters apart. We have measured the correct spacing so that we can maximize the numbers of tables present while complying with this health order. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
Reservations are accepted and encouraged. We accept a limited number of reservations as late as 6:00 PM from Monday to Saturday. Call us at 306-359-7276 to secure your table. Larger reservations must still be distanced two meters away from other tables. We are able to accommodate larger groups in a limited capacity. These health measures will continue to loosen up as the province enters into Phase Three of the 2021 Reopening Roadmap Plan on July 11th. We look forward to hearing more details from our provincial government on how restaurants will be affected.
Please continue to practice safe health and social distancing practices. Remain connected to one another and to us! In addition to this weekly newsletter, we are very active on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Check-in with us often as we navigate these continually evolving times together. Try to support local businesses whenever possible. Be vigilant in your resolve to protect yourselves which in turn will protect others. Please don’t let your guard DOWN so the province can continue to open back UP!
Kudos to our long-time resident handyman, Remi Cote! He removed and cleaned all our big beautiful windows today, inside and out! Let that beautiful Saskatchewan summer sun shine in on all our plants and customers for months to come!
BLUE BOMBERS ANNOUNCE NEW LOCAL CRAFT BEER AT IG FIELD
WINNIPEG, MB., June 2021 – The Winnipeg Blue Bombers recently announced the addition of local craft beer at IG Field which will be sold at new Home Grown stands throughout the stadium beginning this summer.
Along with Molson Coors products, fans will find Brazen Hall Brewing Company and Trans Canada Brewing Company brews available throughout the stadium alongside local food offerings at the Home Grown stands.
“Bringing Local craft beer to IG Field has been a priority for us and with the support of our new official beer partner, Molson Coors, we were able to deliver on that for our fans,” said Wade Miller President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club. “Brazen Hall and Trans Canada Brewing Company will be great additions to our stadium offerings.”
Fans can look forward to seeing the Steel Cut Blonde Ale and Haze Bomb Juicy Pale Ale from Brazen Hall and Bluebeary Ale and Avenger American Pale Ale from Trans Canada Brewing Company.
“Our passion for our Blue Bombers is close to our passion for brewing beer,” said Kristján Kristjánsson, President and Culinary Director at Brazen Hall. “We are thrilled officially find a way to intertwine the two by bringing our beer and special food pairings to IG Field.”
“We are honoured to be one of the first local brewers and represent the local craft beer industry at IG Field,” said Josh van den Ende, Sales and Events Leader at Trans Canada Brewing Company. “We can’t wait to serve our beers to the passionate fans that will fill the stadium this season.”
The Club looks forward to welcoming fans back to IG Field at the home opener against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats August 5th.

TIME OUT – The Talking Frog
A guy is 86 years old and loves to fish. He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say,
“Pick me up.”
He looked around and couldn’t see any one. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again,
“Pick me up.” He looked in the water and there, floating on the top was a frog.
The man said, “Are you talking to me?”
The frog said, “Yes, I’m talking to you. Pick me up.
Then, kiss me and I’ll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen.
I’ll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because you will have me as your bride.”
The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front breast pocket.
Then the frog said, “What, are you nuts? Didn’t you hear what I said?
I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride.”
He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said,
“Nah, at my age I’d rather have a talking frog.”
