How it works

We partner with a local brewery to curate a tasting box which includes two beers and a food pairing for each, as well as a custom pint glass exclusive to Brew Box. The breweries and food vendors featured in Brew Box will always be Manitoba based.

You purchase the box from our featured brewer for $25, plus tax. Click the “buy now” button above to be directed to the purchase page for the current edition of the Brew Box.

Join in on a virtual tasting session exclusive to Brew Box buyers, which is hosted by Winnipeg Free Press drinks writer Ben Sigurdson and will include guests from the brewery and food vendors who will discuss the pairings.
