Posted November 18, 2022 | Author Desiree Rantala

The big game - it's here! What better way to enjoy then with some great grub and good company while catching the play by play on the big screen. Soccer, hockey, football, whatever suits your fancy. There is no food quite like game day food. You've got the crunchy, the crispy, the hearty, the zesty, and oh, don't forget the heat! Here are 10 spots in Manitoba to grab grub and watch the game.

1. king's head pub & eatery

Winnipeg

A Winnipeg classic. King's Head Pub is one of the longest running businesses in the Exchange District. Known for their entertainment, live music, wide array of beers on tap, great grub, and who can forget their iconic atmosphere. Choose from domestic and import drafts, curb your craving for curry and order one of their many delicious dishes or try their classic bangers 'n' mash.

2. brazen hall

Winnipeg

Get ready to bust out the beers and burgers at Brazen Hall. Boldly going where no beer has gone before, Brazen Hall is not only home to a local brewery but also home to honest hosting and hearty food. It's game day - go for the brazen bacon or brewer's pretzel. Still hungry? Satisfy that sweet tooth with their english bread pudding.

3. blackwheat brewing

Brandon

Pints, flights, and growlers oh my! Try a different approach to life on the beach with Blackwheat Brewing’s Berry Kettle Sour. This cool and casual atmosphere offers an array of seating for those looking to sit back and socialize, or set their sights on behind-the-scenes action with views of the production area. Candid conversation coupled with chic decor is the perfect pairing for an 1882 New England IPA. On the run? Grab a brew to go with their large selection of canned beers.

4. pre-game sports bar & lounge

Winnipeg

Best place to pre-game? You got it! Pre-Game Sports Bar & Lounge is Winnipeg's newest sports spot, located in St. Boniface. With 15 different screens, two pool tables, a strong roster of brews on taps, and an impressive menu full of family recipes and pub food favourites! Their kabobs are worth every bite, and if you're feeling ambitious, hit a home run with their grand slam nachos...and we recommend sharing. With a friend. Or two...

5. joe beeverz

Brandon

Get ready for poutine paradise at Joe Beeverz. Home to 12 different types of poutines and the world record for the largest poutine at 1,949 pounds! Sorry, this one isn't available on the menu. The Joe Beeverz starting line-up is waiting for you. Try their rocky mountain rollups, Joe's pickle spears, mushroom bombs, chili shrimp, or buffalo perogies. Still feeling hungry? Dive into their double dusted wings or dessert. You'll be munchin' and crunchin' for awhile.

6. leopold's tavern

Winnipeg

Leave it to Leopold's Tavern to serve up more than great tasting food. A culture of community, craft beer, and cool atmosphere leave visitors coming back for more. With 5 locations to choose from in Winnipeg, Leopold's is only a leap away. Find them on Academy, Osborne Village, South Osborne, Bridgwater, and coming soon to Henderson highway. Try the new plant based menu, the anytime breakfast, or a scotch egg. Yes, you can order one egg.
