Prairie Sun Brewery

posted by My Saskatoon    |   August 8, 2014 14:57

The best things about summer in Saskatchewan- the fun, the relaxation, the laid back vibes, and the warmth that we crave all winter long can be found year-round at Prairie Sun Brewery. But right now, in the heart of summer, the place is in its prime. We stopped by to do some beer sampling, and discovered so much more than expected! The experience you get at Prairie Sun Brewery is vibrant. Outside on the patio, the late afternoon sun shining through a wall of sunflowers casts a glow on a group enjoying an after-work pint. Indoors, bright murals adorn the walls, and picnic tables lend a casual, comfortable vibe to the space. The people are friendly and down to earth, and you can sense the local love. A feeling of community resonates throughout the space. 

  

But what about the beer? We tasted 7 different beers, and while we are not connoisseurs by any means, these are our best attempts at describing each of the great varieties of local beer available at Prairie Sun Brewery!

Campfire

This smoked red lager tastes like a campfire. In a good way. 

Toffee 5

Chocolate toffee porter, sweet and creamy, its almost like dessert. It would be fantastic mixed with ice cream in a milkshake!

Prairie Lily

A German lager, smooth with a lingering finish. 

Urban Wheat

This one tastes like a classic- hoppy and complex!

Crazy Farm

The fan favourite, it is a crisp, flavourful Belgian Ale. 

Cactus Tap

The lightest of Prairie Sun's offerings, this one has a mellow, balanced flavour. 

Moose Tracks

Dark and sour, it almost tastes like a cross between beer and wine. This assessment might not be too far off, as it is aged in a barrel!? 

 

If you're looking for a local spot to hit after work with friends or colleagues, or you want to mix up your lunch hour routine, Prairie Sun is ready for you. They've always got pizza by the slice, and additional food offerings change daily as they partner with local food vendors to bring you hot eats to enjoy with your beer! Its also the only North-End stop for Saskatoon's awesome food trucks, so connect with Prairie Sun Brewery on social media to stay updated on what's for lunch!

This weekend is the best time of the summer to visit the brewery- tonight and tomorrow (August 8 & 9), stop in for Prairie Sun Brewery's Beer Launch and sample their latest local creation- Dog Patch Pale Ale. While you're there, order a flight and try 4 different beers for the price of a pint! And as always, enjoy responsibly :)
