Ukraine-Kyiv Pavilion is partnering with local Manitoba producers for Folklorama 2022 – Oxus Brewing and Baltic Brothers!
This joint venture helps support local businesses post COVID19 and launches a partnership that we hope will continue to grow into the future. Both companies have ties to our homeland and “old world” Eastern Europe, which creates some unique opportunities for collaboration. In addition, we are able to help to reduce our carbon footprint by using kegs and not having products shipped across continents.
Some of our new beverage offerings that we are featuring this year are exclusive to our Pavilion!
Oxus Brewing Company is an independent micro-brewery in Winnipeg, MB which specializes in crafting classic and modern beer styles from around the world using locally sourced ingredients. We have partnered with Ukraine-Kyiv Pavilion this year to create a refreshing lager called Мрiя – The Dream inspired by a favourite brewed by a legendary brewery in Kyiv. Along with Мрiя – The Dream, we will be offering three other amazing beers at the Ukraine-Kyiv Pavilion which we proudly made for the guests of the Pavilion to enjoy. Bud’mo!
