THE WAKKER WEEKLY
Issue #1669 – Posted on: 23-January-2023
BREWERY “HOPP”ENINGS: Bushwakker Head brewer, Michael Gaetz, reports that our seasonally available ARCTIC DARK MUNICH DUNKEL, BLACKBERRY MEAD, “MISSILE”TOW CHRISTMAS ALE, CHERRY PASSION FRUIT ALE, and PICKARD’S OATMEAL CREAM STOUT are currently available. A batch of BARON BOCK is currently working its way through the brewery.
We haven’t seen this beautiful brew in a few years. (Damn pandemic!) Our ARCTIC DARK MUNICH DUNKEL is our take on the classic German dark lager style. Balanced toward the malt with a toasty caramel nuttiness. It’s rich yet approachable with a touch of chocolate and plenty of malt complexity.
This Weekend’s Special Dining Feature for January 20th & 21st is a SCOTCH STEAK w/ PEPPERCORN MUSHROOM DEMI SAUCE for $23.95. Our Saturday CLASSIC STEAK & A PINT SPECIAL as well as our Monday and Wednesday WINGS & A PINT SPECIAL and Tuesday PIZZA & A PINT SPECIAL are also great value deals.
Free haggis, men in kilts, a firkin of Scottish beer and birthday cake? After a three-year hiatus our Bushwakker & Robbie Burns combined Birthday Bash is back on Saturday, January 21st!
Our SASK CRAFT GUEST TAP is currently pouring a special Saskatchewan Craft Brewers Association 2022 collaborative AMERICAN PALE ALE brewed by Saskatoon’s 9 Mile Legacy Brewing. Next up is the COLD BREW AMERICANO STOUT from Pile O’ Bones Brewing.
JANUARY PREMIUM WINE FEATURES: This month’s wine features are the LES JAMELLES wines from southern France. The white wine is their SAUVIGNON BLANC and the red is their MERLOT. Both are $7.95 for a glass and $21.95 for a half litre.
Much thanks to the Regina Leader Post for last Saturday’s front page story honouring one of our own! Congrats to floor manager, Cheryl Tovey, on your Bushwakker retirement.

The Cold Macsween Beer (Haggis beer) was the brainchild of Edinburgh based online drinks specialist Flavourly and uses the exact spice blend from the top secret Macsween Haggis recipe to make the Haggis Spiced Pale Ale, brewed locally by Grassmarket brewery, Cold Town Beer.
World famous haggis producer, Macsween, have been making Haggis for nearly 70 years with the top secret haggis recipe having been passed down through three generations of this family run business.
Whilst the specific ingredients are a closely guarded secret James Macsween, managing director and the grandson of the founders Jean and Charlie Macsween, hand delivered a pre-mixed batch of spices, used to create this unique Haggis Spiced Pale Ale.
Macsween of Edinburgh produces 1000 tonnes of haggis annually. Around a third is eaten over Burns equating to 1.6 million portions of haggis being consumed celebrating Rabbie Burns.
The spices in haggis lend themselves perfectly to a Spiced Pale Ale and Cold Macsween Beer is a full bodied, balanced pale ale brewed with Scottish malted barley and oats alongside a pinch of the Macsween’s secret spice blend.
Easy drinking with subtle pepper notes, the limited edition beers are brewed by innovative Edinburgh brewery Cold Town Beer and available exclusively from Flavourly.
Flavourly selected Cold Town based on their expertise in creating interesting, fun and delicious brews and following a successful partnership last year which saw three Cold Town beers feature in the Flavourly Explorer case (Darjeeling Table Beer, Hopped Up Wheat Beer and Pale Oat Ale).
The limited edition Cold Macsween Beer (4.3% abv) costs £19.99 for 6, £29.99 for 12 or £49.99 for 24 – 330ml cans including free delivery and is available exclusively from the Flavourly website.
The Cold Macsween Beers will also feature in two exclusive mixed Scottish cases including beers from other notable Scottish breweries such as; Tempest Brewing Co, Loch Lomond Brewery and Glasgow Beer Works and priced at £29.95 for 20 or £59.95 for 32 beers.
TIME OUT – Haggis Mishap
My Scottish girlfriend was feeling homesick so I decided to try and make a homemade haggis to cheer her up.
I thought I had a fairly strong constitution but as soon as I starting mixing the heart, lungs and kidneys, I then realized I didn’t have the stomach for it.
We couldn’t agree more! How could anyone forget about the delicious Single Malt Scotch Whisky?! See you at our Robbie Burns/Bushwakker Birthday Bash on Saturday, January 21st! 6:00 PM.
