The Bushwakker Brewpub was created on the main floor of the Strathdee Building, a classic warehouse in what is known now as Regina's Old Warehouse District. The area contains many restaurants, nightclubs, bars and pool halls. The Strathdee was built in 1913 out of the rubble of the Great Regina Cyclone (actually a tornado) of 1912, on the site of a former Chinese laundry, and opened in 1914. It was the "cadillac" warehouse of the area. The front of the main floor housed offices and a display area, with a beautiful pressed tin ceiling. The ceiling was restored to its original glory as part of the Bushwakker development.
Bushwakker todayThe decor is in earth tones with light to medium natural wood finishes. The visitor does not forget that he/she is in a restored warehouse. The walls are decorated with dozens of pictures showing the historical development of Regina, including the aftermath of the Great Cyclone. One wall is devoted to the works of a Saskatchewan artist of the month. The brewhouse is visible through large windows.
