We are thrilled to launch a new collaboration with Barn Hammer Brewing Company. Big Water, a limited-edition, lake-themed gose, will be available while supplies last for the month of July. Barn Hammer’s generous co-owners Sable and Tyler Birch will be donating $1 from the sale of each bottle to LWF. Giving has never been so refreshing!
“Going to the lake is an essential part of summer for so many of us in Manitoba,” says Alexis Kanu, LWF’s executive director. “We’re excited to celebrate local breweries and local lakes – two ingredients for a great Manitoba summer!”
Join us for a pint to celebrate Lake Winnipeg and local beer!

Lake Winnipeg Memories is a vintage photo exhibit curated by you! Launching on July 3, this is your chance to showcase your family’s unique relationship with Lake Winnipeg.

In honour of Earth Day 2017, we’ll be joining the International Institute of Sustainable Development at Barn Hammer Brewing Company on April 25, to share why fresh water matters to Manitobans.

In lively three-minute presentations, they will explore why water matters to the art scene, local business, our agricultural sector and our history, as well as what traditional knowledge reveals about our relationship to water.
Our friends at FortWhtye Alive are celebrating Earth Day 2017 with live entertainment, environmental workshops, fun outdoor activities and other special programming. Even better? Admission is free all day!
