Last Best IPA
Taking a path less traveled, this newcomer to the IPA arena likes to court your taste buds with its flirty aromatics and its raw, unfiltered, approach to big balanced American style IPAs.

there-will-be-porter
There Will Be Porter
Reintroducing an amazing style in its intended manner; There Will Be Porter is a no-bullshit malty English Ale. This is a beer that will resonate well with Calgarians. Porters played a predominant role throughout industrialization of the UK and modestly quenched the insatiable thirst of the hard-nosed working class. We’ve stripped the style back to its raw form and we present it today as a tribute to the amazing founders of this great city.

There will be Porter is a ballsy black Ale that brings a balanced malt-focused flavour – look for hints of toffee and black coffee with chocolate notes in its dry finish.

Malts: Superior Pale, Chocolate, Crystal 30, Crystal 60, Crystal 75, Midnight Wheat
Hops: Magnum

Dirty Bird Black Lager
This rare style of German Lager has gained significant momentum in North America recently. With its mix of complex roasted malt flavours and its light refreshing body, this lager is as interesting as it is drinkable.

Don’t be fooled by the colour, this light-bodied lager will entice you with its dry coffee nose and its refreshing, clean finish. This black beer will hold its own on any hot patio day and will be a great alternative to simple mainstream American-style Lagers.

Olsch Kolsch B'Golsch
Our lawnmower beer done right. An ale brewed to taste like a lager, this playful patio crusher is light with a subtle malt sweetness and enough yeast complexity to still get a pleasant buzz in the sunshine.

We used the original Kolsch yeast from Cologne, Germany with noble hops and Alberta barley to create this perfectly balanced session beer. One for the novice craft drinkers.
