Are you bored of drinking that regular beer with that same old taste? Is it almost like drinking flavoured water, whereby your brain doesn’t even register an essence anymore?
If you’re looking for beer with flavour and taste, then I’ve got the place for you!
Luxalune Gastropub, located at 734 Osborne St., is a medium-sized establishment with a classy/casual interior and a small patio out front. Service is fast and friendly and the food is well prepared and delicious.
Luxalune sports a selection ranging between 150-170 different beers (depending on stock) from over 80 countries so, as long as you have the slightest inkling for adventure, you won’t be disappointed. Approximately 20-30 of these beers come from brewers exclusive only to Luxalune.
Trust me; you’ll be hard up to find a selection like this anywhere else.
I spoke with co-owner Lawrence Warwaruk and got a really good sense of how much work and pride he and his brother, Chris, put into their place. They promote craft beers from breweries that are "small, independent and traditional."
Lawrence and Chris are always looking to expand their horizons. Lawrence explained that they are "working on our Farmery Estate Brewery project out by Neepawa.
"There, we are growing the ingredients that go into beer — the hops and barley, with the hopes of building the brewery at the farm.
"We will be launching a new menu where we will be featuring "beer cocktails" such as "beergaritas", Michalatas, Black and Tan Farmery lager, etc."
These guys really love their beer!
Next time you’re looking to treat your barley buds to something new be sure to stop by the Luxalune and allow your senses the opportunity to travel the world, one country, or one continent, at a time.
