Winnipeggers missing a popular brew from Half Pints will see it back on liquor mart shelves soon.

Pride Winnipeg and Half Pints released their annual rendition of Queer Beer, a special brew that raises funds for the city’s Pride Festival.

Each year the organization and the local brewery collaborate to create the special beer and it is sold in Manitoba liquor stores for a brief time leading up to the Pride Festival.

Friday night Winnipeggers will get their first chance to sample the beer at the release party.

Club 200 is hosting the party Friday evening, and the funds raised for the event will go to support the Pride Festival, which is scheduled for June 2.
