If you like kicking back with a cold beer or relaxing with a glass of wine, craft alcohol brewers across Saskatchewan are hoping you’ll keep their latest creation in mind.
The Saskatchewan Craft Brewers Association and the Saskatchewan Artisan Wines and Spirits Association have teamed up to launch an interactive road map, showcasing where alcohol producers across the province are located.
The map also tells you a bit about each manufacturer and connects you to their contact information.
Shawn Moen, a director of the SCBA and co-founder of Nine Mile Legacy, said the map is symbolic.
“It symbolizes unity within our associations and our industries, where we can certainly create something bigger than just ourselves,” explained Moen.
Moen added that Saskatchewan is still behind most provinces when it comes to craft beer.
He said, when looking to provinces like B.C., total craft beer sales are about 20 per cent with the national average being around 8 to 9 per cent.
Here in Saskatchewan, Moen estimated craft beer sales to sit around 2 to 3 per cent.
However, within the last five years, he said a culture has emerged across the province — one that cares about craft alcohol and likes to support local businesses.
