Saskatoon – Graham DeLaet and brewer Bomber Brewing have launched a new craft beer, Prairie Baard – Blue Collar Craft.
Over the upcoming weeks, the beer will be available in SLGA locations across Saskatchewan and in liquor distributors throughout Alberta – including Sobeys, Safeway, Co-op, and Liquor Depot, with plans to expand its footprint coast to coast across Canada in the near future.
For the launch and just in time to kick off the May long weekend, Prairie Baard will hit shelves at SLGA University Heights in Saskatoon and SLGA South Albert in Regina.
To officially launch Prairie Baard, DeLaet will be touring two locations to host kick-off events, where consumers can enjoy Prairie Baard tastings and meet Graham DeLaet and the team behind the beer:
- Wednesday, May 25th from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
SLGA University Heights – 503 Nelson Road, Saskatoon, SK
- Thursday, May 26th from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Sobeys Royal Oak – 8888 Country Hills Blvd NW, Calgary, AB
DeLaet, born and raised in rural Saskatchewan, has a passion for all things Canadian – including hockey, fishing, golf and of course, beer. In collaboration with Bomber Brewing, the concept of Prairie Baard was designed by DeLaet with these passions in mind while building the concept of the beer from the ground up. Throughout the creation process, DeLaet inserted his personal tasting notes into the development of the recipe with Bomber.
Prairie Baard’s Golden Ale is brewed with 70% Saskatchewan Barley and 30% Saskatchewan wheat, both of which are malted in Biggar, SK.
