Although numbers might have been down from previous years, Prairie Partners once again were able to connect locals with made-in-Manitoba beverages to raise money for a worthy cause.
The night before St. Patrick’s Day, March 16, was the date for the third annual Craft Beer Tasting at the Sawmill. According to Prairie Partners Executive Director Misheyla Iwasiuk, the event again went well.
“It was good,” she said, “It was fun and it seemed like everyone out there had a good time.”
There were about 50 participants this year. Iwasiuk said that was down a bit from previous years, but they had a fair bit of competition on that night. There were two socials in the area, and the Border Kings were hosting Gladstone in the first game of the Tiger Hills Hockey League finals. However, they raised around $1,300, which was in line with previous years.
