FRESH. NO PRESERVATIVES. WORLD-CLASS BREWERS. AUTHENTIC.
RESPONSIBLY SOURCED AND
CANADIAN WHEAT ALE
MELVIN (Mel) was a jazz singer with a voice as smooth as this unfiltered wheat beer. He’s the inspiration behind this luminous, gold coloured brew with a citrus, tangy nose, brewed with only the best Canadian wheat and barley. Discharged from the military, Mel found his way to the Currie Barracks where he met the tricksters Rosie & Reggie – backing each other’s high jinks since 1996.
Don’t let these two tricksters convince you that the fox turned red from drinking too many Wraspberry Ales. ROSIE and REGGIE can be persuasive, which makes them a good team, but there are no tricks behind this truly refreshing beer. The fresh fruit flavour comes from thousands of raspberries in each batch, that’s it.
INDUSTRIAL PARK ALE
We recognize the birthplace of our brewery in Calgary’s Foothills Industrial Park with this time-honoured recipe for a well-balanced IPA, marked by the most industrious of beavers, CHUCK. This coppery brew has plenty of hops perfectly balanced with rich malt to satiate the thirst provoked by a dam long work day.
Electric Avenue’s main proponent of partying, BROCK JR., has been carrying on his father’s legacy since 1996. Brock Jr. epitomizes the going-all-out spirit of every Albertan who works hard to play hard. Electric Avenue is more than just a place in Calgary for a good time, its an easy-drinking Alberta blonde ale. Cheers! …Because we all have a friend like Brock Jr.
BUZZ is the falcon to watch for in the Barracks. Inspired by one of Canada’s famed fighter pilots, he is decorated yet humble, watchful yet wandering. Barracks Brown is a dark yet approachable, crisp yet smooth, highly drinkable brown ale with notes of espresso and cocoa.
HEMP STRONG PALE ALE
BUDD the goat and his wacky crop
found us while selling his hefty, budding harvest at the old Currie Barracks Farmer’s Market. His head might be clouded, but Budd knows his brews. High Harvest is an unfiltered strong pale ale made with velvety hemp flour to quench the driest cotton mouth. Inhaling this tropical hop aroma all day has got Budd flying high..
HAZY INDIA SESSION ALE
Alberta is said to be one of the sunniest places in the world, and we can’t get enough! This super hazy ISA is a salute to that big sunny sky and the adventure we have under it. Abundant dry-hopping provides huge tropical, juicy aroma and flavour rounded out with a touch of bitterness and lower alcohol content to keep the journey going.
ALBERTA CRAFT LAGER
This fine-tuned craft lager is subtly hopped, with a crisp finish that rings clear through the valley. Light straw in colour and effervescent, this Alberta brew boasts a delicate balance between mellow malt character and tactful bitterness – a year-round solution to quench any thirst throughout the badlands.
CANADIAN DARK WHEAT ALE
FOREST is a name not to be taken lightly, for a beer that deserves it. Six types of malted wheat and barley and a variety of hops delicately “spice” this red-amber hued beer. Aromas of biscuits and caramel sweetness, and perfectly balanced malt and hops give this beer a clean, crisp, and refreshing taste.
Undeniably striking, the Alberta wilderness is vast, mysterious and complex, much like this oatmeal stout. Black as it’s namesake with a creamy, tan head, this brew is velvety smooth with low carbonation. Six
different malts, UK hops, and oatmeal contribute to this stout’s untamed, roasty character.
Ponderosa Gose (goh-ZUH) is an irresistibly refreshing wheat beer brewed with passion fruit, salt and coriander. Pale, tart and unfiltered, this brew is your party pal in tropical Alberta.

Brewed with a unique blend of sweet and sour cherries, each glass is lush and creamy with a fruity aroma and a flavour reminiscent of Black Forest cake. Roasted malts contribute a slightly smoky character with sweet chocolate notes, making this brew one to cozy up to in these cold, Albertan winters.
Key Lime Kettle Sour
Pucker up for this dog day zinger! This light-tasting ale is tangy and tart thanks to a technique called kettle souring. The result is a boldly refreshing brew, balanced to perfection with real key lime juice.
