A nearby brewery is going to be featured on the popular Canadian TV show, Dragons' Den tonight.

Brothers Chris and Lawrence Warwaruk appeared on Dragons' Den four years ago to ask for an investment towards their brewery.

Their ask was $200,000 dollars for 20 per cent of the company, leaving with that deal to begin building what is now Farmery Estate Brewery in Neepawa.

According to Chris Warwaruk, the episode is a look back on how the brothers have moved forward since their last visit with the dragons.

"It's really a follow up episode to kind of showcase our journey from over four years ago when we first went on Dragons' Den, asking them for money to invest in our dream and our vision. This is just showcasing and showing the public to say, what kind of journey it was, and what the end result is."

The episode will be on CBC tonight at 8 pm.
