Warehouse Brewing Company was located in the warehouse district of Regina, SK. They took up residence in thee old Weston Bakery building and completely embraced the history of the building, leaving the original brick walls, wooden beams, and concrete floor. Their patio was a great place to sip on a cold beer on a hot day and they will be missed terribly.
