About Cabin Brewing Company

Cabin Brewing Company is a brewery, taproom and getaway in the heart of Calgary's growing brewing district, The Barley Belt.

We serve our craft beer, brewed on site, and pair it with a selection of hot and cold food items including New Zealand-style hot meat pies, warm pretzels with dipping sauces and cheese and charcuterie boards.

Take the time to relax with friends and family in our comfortable 45-seat taproom, or settle in with a book or a board game. You are welcome to bring the whole family; we have Lego, high chairs, kids snacks and a change table so even the smallest members of the Cabin family are comfortable.

Super Duper Saturation   (4.19/5)

Just like Super Saturation but even more super! More hops, more malt, more haze, more heft, more mmmmmmm. Look up juicy in the dictionary and you’ll find this beer.

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double New England / Hazy

ABV: 8%    IBU: 45

Triple Threat   (4.18/5)

If you could select your three favourite hops to
make a beer, what would you choose?

We opted for three of the most fragrant,
enigmatic and unique hop varietals known to
brewers, representing the three top hop-growing
regions in the world - the Pacific Northwest of
the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

We’ve dunked a ridiculous amount of Sabro
(US), Galaxy (Aus) and Nelson Sauvin (NZ) hops
into this absolute rip-snorter of a haze bomb.
Imagine an explosion at a tropical fruit juicing
plant and you’ll be partway towards knowing
what this smells and tastes like. It’s smooth,
full-bodied and very, very, VERY aromatic.

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double New England / Hazy

ABV: 8.5%    IBU: 60

Link Back: Triple Threat - Brewed In Calgary AB

Static Effect   (3.96/5)

Massive amounts of Sabro, Amarillo and Mosaic hops are balanced against a smooth Maris Otter malt base to create a hazy, juicy, taste explosion with notes of tangerine, berry fruit and light woody notes.

Style: IPA - New England / Hazy

ABV: 7%    IBU: 45

Luminosity   (3.78/5)

Our first beer this year rises from 2020’s ashes, glowing gold and shining bright.

Luminosity German Pils is the antidote to the year that was. It’s a simple, easy-drinking lager crafted in the German brewing tradition - one defined by balance, quality ingredients and drinkability.

It’s crisp, dry and has long-lasting bready malt notes. You’ll notice delightful spicy and floral aromas and a low to medium bitterness that slowly builds as you drink. Hold it to the light and you’ll see the most glorious, gentle golden hue. You’ll want the luminous light to wash over you like a baptisim of hope, but don’t linger too long – afterall, this is a beer made for drinking.


Style: Pilsner - German

Cool As   (3.67/5)

This beer is tart, dry and super refreshing with layers of complex lime flavours and aromas, balanced with a cool earthy undertone from the cucumber. Making this beer was fun! We hand-peeled 300 pounds of Alberta-grown cucumbers, and zested and juiced 200 limes.

We also added torn kaffir lime leaves and smashed dried Mediterranean loomi limes to give it a certain something that most lime beers do not. Light additions of salt and coriander bring the flavours together with a long lasting bready wheat flavour.

It’s not just cool. It’s Cool As!

Style: Sour - Fruited Gose

ABV: 5.2%    IBU: 10

Link Back: Cool As - Brewed In Calgary AB

Staycation   (3.96/5)

Staycation is pandemic life in springtime in a glass. It is part sweet, part sour and there is so much vibrancy right before your eyes, like the stay-at-home life you’ve been ignoring all this time, without realizing just how awesome it is. With tart cherry, raspberry, red currant, black currant, blueberry and blackberry blending in a jam-like melange, there is a lot to be thankful for and enjoy. While safely nestled at home.

Style: Sour - Fruited Berliner Weisse

ABV: 3.8%    IBU: 12

In the Hallway, With the Axe   (3.72/5)

All work and no play makes Professor Plum a dull boy. Was he the mysterious purple-clad figure roaming the halls of the Overlook Hotel the night the Grady twins died? We have no clue. We do, however, know a good mash-up when we see it. Like the salty and sour flavours of German gose beer, melded with the rich, dark fruit notes of ripe plum. Additions of coriander and wheat give a lingering flavour that shines. It’s to die for.

Style: Sour - Fruited Gose

Super Juicii   (4.38/5)

Sometimes, a beer is just meant to be. It comes as a vision – and once you’ve imagined it, there’s no point fighting it, so you may as well just jump in boots and all and bring it to life.

When we first laid eyes on Kilter Brewing in Winnipeg, it was love at first sight. The beer, the branding, the vision and the attention to quality all gelled so nicely with Cabin’s ideals, we couldn’t NOT work together.

We started where the vision told us to start – by mashing up our two hazy flagship beers Juicii and Super Saturation. We wanted something super. Something juicy. Something…. Super Juicii? Heck yeah! We took a few hops from this beer, a few from that, ramped up the malt bill and BAM – we have one epic haze monster, bursting with tropical aromas and with a rich, full body that’ll feel like velvet in a glass (if velvet smelled like awesome).

Only available for a short time – get it while you can!

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double New England / Hazy

ABV: 8%    IBU: 55

Total Saturation   (4.32/5)

How saturated in aroma and flavour can one beer be? We found ourselves pondering that exact question with our good friends at Collective Craft Beer Shop and decided to find out.

To build a big beer, you need wheat, lots of it. And oats, boatloads. Then all the pils malt and flaked barley you can get your hands on. But your beer can’t be totally saturated until you’ve overflown the kettle with as many hops as you can muster.

For this beer, we used Yakima Chief's Cryo Pop Hop Blend, a hop medley of the most delicious sticky compounds, cryogenically frozen to extract all that concentrated lupulin - the aromatic stuff that makes Saturation beers smell so damned saturated. You’ll get mind-boggling notes of stone fruit, citrus and tropical fruit and as the name suggests, the aroma truly pops from the glass.

And for an extra pop of colour, we opted for Summit Labels’ new fluorescent ink labels, which are vibrant during the day, but really come alive at night under a black light.

We’re totally proud – and a little intimidated if we’re being honest – to present Total Saturation Triple NEIPA, our biggest, boldest, most aromatic and flavourful hazy beer to date. It’s a ten percenter that drinks like a sixer, with a texture as fluffy as cotton ball clouds and aromas that will waft over you for an eternity.

How saturated in aroma and flavour can one beer be? The answer is Total Saturation.

Table Ghost   (4.09/5)

Gather close kids, and listen carefully. Strange things have been happening at Cabin. Really strange things...

A knocking sound in the boiler. A monotonous squeak heard through the walls. Shrieks of delight from the taproom. Vanishing piles of new release beer. One day all the beer turned hazy, and it hasn't been clear since.

Something had to be done. We prayed to the beer gods. We offered up barley wine sacrifices. We had a vision and knew what to do. We threw hops. We sprinkled the brew system with blessed brewing water. We incanted brewing calculations and style guidelines late into the night.

The next day, the activity stopped. At the same time, a ghostly spectre appeared in the wood grain of a taproom table. We had done it. We had trapped Cabin's ghost for good.

Table Ghost NEIPA is an homage to the little ghost that was. It's a dank, murky NEIPA of the finest quality, hopped abundantly with Strata hops. It's juicy, aromatic and delicious.

But wait... did you just see the ghost move around on the label? That's strange. Really strange...

Style: IPA - New England / Hazy

ABV: 6.5%    IBU: 40

Zen Garden   (3.71/5)

For our second lager we wanted to make something different. Something light and crisp, yet floral and intriguing. A glorious lager to welcome in the brighter, lighter days. Something that epitomizes zen-like calm. Zen Garden uses 100% pilsner malt from Alberta’s Origin Malting with fragrant jasmine rice added for complexity and flavour. It’s the palest of straw in colour, with slightly floral and light bready aromas. It has a crisp, clean flavour with some nuttiness on the finish from the rice. It finishes dry and crisp.

Style: Lager - Japanese Rice

ABV: 5%    IBU: 15

Link Back: Zen Garden - Brewed In Calgary AB

Four Alive   (3.9/5)

Four Alive Fruit Sour is crisp, tart and juiiiiiiiicy! We’ve added boatloads of guava, mango, passionfruit and pineapple to create the ultimate refreshing tropical fruit flavoured tart beer – it’s like a juice box for adults!

Style: Sour - Fruited

ABV: 5%    IBU: 15

Link Back: Four Alive - Brewed In Calgary AB

Ultraviolet   (3.66/5)

Fresh-baked cobbler - does anything smell better? We’ve captured the essence of walking into the kitchen on bake day with our first fruit beer. Wafting aromas of baked pie crust, vanilla and cinnamon emerge from the glass, which is filled by a beer of the most vibrant shade of violet thanks to an absurd dose of blueberry puree. Don’t worry beer purists - this beer finishes dry and clean, with a lingering malt complexity. A fruit beer that actually tastes like beer!

Style: Fruit Beer

ABV: 5.4%    IBU: 15

Link Back: Ultraviolet - Brewed In Calgary AB

Night Kitchen ('Smores)   (4.01/5)

Take a trip to the Night Kitchen, where beer and food worlds collide. We take a full bodied imperial milk stout, and judiciously layer flavour upon flavour to create a beer that is like dessert in a glass, while drinking like a well-balanced beer. Graham crackers, cocoa, marshmallow and lactose blend to bring this decadent beer to life.

Let it warm in your hands and capture all the delectable aromas wafting out, like steam from a pie. Try it around a campfire with some 'smores, throw it in some ice cream for a boozy float, or just drink it on its own. Either way, you won't be disappointed!

Style: Stout - Imperial / Double Pastry

ABV: 9%    IBU: 30

The Dreaming   (4.05/5)

Close your eyes and dream of a land so vast and
great and rich in culture you can lose yourself
in it for weeks at a time.

The Dreamtime is the foundation of Aboriginal
religion and culture in Australia. It is the story
of events that have happened, how the universe
came to be, how human beings were created
and how their Creator intended for humans to
function within the world as they knew it.

For our Australian-hopped hazy IPA, The
Dreaming, we leaned into the ethereal qualities
of this mystical land. Galaxy, Enigma and Vic
Secret hops have been layered in tropical
abundance, behind a smooth and full-bodied
malt base. Unlike most hazy beers, we used no
wheat and oats - just 2-row, flaked barley
and Victory malt.

Style: IPA - New England / Hazy

ABV: 6.7%    IBU: 35

Simple Pleasures   (3.76/5)

English mild ale is a throwback to a more simple time where people knew who they voted for and why, saw work as a wage rather than a lifestyle, and who chose their beer like they supported their sports team - because it was what you did and it wasn’t worth fussing over.

Simple Pleasures is what we drink to take life back a notch or two. There’s a ton of flavour for a light beer, with notes of light chocolate, biscuit, nuttiness, dried fruit – raisin, plum especially – and pours a delightful mahogany colour.

No pretension. No gimmicks. Just a refreshing, flavourful malt-accented beer that is readily suited to drinking in quantity (and at just 3.8% it’s perfect for having a few).

Style: Mild - Other

Jungle Juice   (4.08/5)

As we continue to explore the realm of hazy IPAs, we find ourselves increasingly drawn to the depths of tropical flavours and aromas that come from the interplay of new world hops and fruit.

Jungle Juice NEIPA features the full-bodied hazy IPA body you’ve come to know and love from Cabin, with the addition of three drums of pineapple puree and a banana boat-load of Sabro hops. The hops contribute coconut, cream and tropical fruit notes, contributing to a beer that is like tropical punch in a pint glass. It’s juicy, hazy, full-bodied and with some citric fruity tartness that really make the flavours pop.

Welcome to the jungle. We think you’re going to like it here.

Style: IPA - New England / Hazy

ABV: 7.4%    IBU: 45

Stratosphere   (4.01/5)

Our expedition to the far reaches of the hop world continues, with a bold new IPA that is firmly rooted in the past.

We teamed up with Ontario brewery Collective Arts to create some hop artistry in the form of Stratosphere West Coast DIPA.

We dusted off some old school hops we know and love – Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial – and weaved in Strata hops to create a mesmerizing bright citrus character with tropical fruit backing notes and an underlying dankness that really brings the aromas alive.

This beer is out of this world. It’s insanely aromatic, dry, and has a long-lasting resinous bitterness to remind you of the good old days when an IPA was an IPA.

Grab a glass and join our expedition. There is a universe of flavour to be found.

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double

ABV: 8.5%    IBU: 80

Falling Skies   (3.66/5)

It can feel like a dark, dark world sometimes, but rest assured - there are beacons to light the way. Summer is around the corner. Vaccines are at hand. We may have forgotten how to speak face-to-face, but we haven’t lost the ability to love and be kind.

At first glance Falling Skies Dark Sour seems like a beer for dark days. But the deep brown colour comes from Sinamar liquid malt extract, which provides colour without the roasty notes you’d expect from a dark beer.

And the light at the end of the tunnel? Boatloads of tart cherries and apricots that provide vibrant bursts of tangy fruit flavour and baking spice notes. It’s a delightfully juicy flavour explosion to light you up from the inside.

Style: Sour - Fruited

ABV: 5%    IBU: 10
