Manitoba craft brewers get boost from province

Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries is pumping money into craft beer in hopes of encouraging more producers to get in the brewing market.

The organization has set aside up to $5-million to help cover some of the overhead costs that sometimes serve as a barrier to getting into the brewing business.

“The industry is just starting to boom,” Culture and Tourism Minister Ron Lemieux said Monday. “This is a piece that has been missing,”. Loans of up to $250,000 will be available to help pay for things like brewing and distilling equipment. They will only be available to Manitoba-based companies.
