About Tool Shed Brewing Co.

Jeff and Graham are simply two terrific buddies who met while working on IT and satellite communication projects back in 2007. They connected over a love for taking their hobbies WAY too far and Tool Shed Brewing Company is the natural result of two good home brewing friends that took their favourite hobby further than most.

People Skills   (3.5/5)

Our session-able cream ale is light, refreshing and tries to get along with everybody. This smooth, lightly hopped ale offers beautiful mouthfeel and a golden, crystal clear appearance. It’s a real, refreshing crowd pleaser.

Style: Cream Ale

ABV: 5.2%    IBU: 17

Star Cheek   (3.64/5)

This India Pale Ale is hoppy, bold and citrusy, yet clean and crisp. Higher in alcohol yet still remarkably balanced. These hops don’t smack you in the face, they tempt you to experience their complex profile.

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 6.2%    IBU: 70

Red Rage   (3.59/5)

This beer is dark red, roasty like coffee, toasty like fresh bread and makes your mouth water for more. We put just enough hops in to remind you what they’re capable of. This ale is medium boded and easy to drink.

Style: Red Ale - American Amber / Red

ABV: 5.6%    IBU: 32

Flat Cap Stout   (3.75/5)

Every once in a while a LEGEND comes around and revolutionizes an industry! For craft beer canning that legend is Jamie Gordon! A home-brew shop owner who, back in 1999, handbuilt a small manual canner for home brewers. The rest, as they say, is history! Jamie spent 16 years tirelessly devoted to traveling the globe to install, educate, and help every single craft brewery possible benefit from canning their craft beer! Tool Shed is one of those breweries and is honoured to have called Jamie our friend! We love that Jamie taught his boys, “Stop stealing my beer and learn how to brew it!!” so this stout is for Jamie!

In order to mirror that classy, GQ, flat cap wearin’ style of Jamie, this stout is deeply roasty and rich with a surprising presence of hops and a beautiful, smooth, dry finish. If ever a stout were to rock a flat cap like Jamie did, this would be that beer!

Style: Stout - American

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 50

Belgian Dip   (3.86/5)

"It's how we drink it in Belgium"

Passion   (3.64/5)

This refreshing blonde ale perfectly ecapsulates the exotic flavours of passion fruit while not being overly sweet. A crushable patio beer that is sure to please.

Papa Bam Bam's Oatmeal Pale Ale   (3.74/5)

If you could thank anyone for the amazing recent explosion of craft breweries opening in our province, who would it be? We'd like to thank Neil Bamford who, along with his amazing partner Tom Corbett, run The Vineyard home-brew shop. Where else does a craft brewing revolution start but at the local home-brew shop? Neil seems to be fuelled by a mission of turning home-brewers into pro-brewers. This one is for Neil.
The beer is a sessionable Oatmeal Pale ale utilizing Cascade as a single hop variety which imparts sweet floral citrus aromas of grapefruit and limes balanced with slight spicy pine notes on the palate. At 4.5% with a balanced crisp bitterness, this beer is a PERFECT companion for summer patio session, but then again so is Neil.

Style: Pale Ale - American

ABV: 4.5%    IBU: 45

Prairie Pride   (3.64/5)

At Tool Shed we often talk about helping make “A Better Alberta Through Craft Beer!” but what if we could create “A Better Craft Beer Using ONLY ALBERTA!"? Meet our latest creation, #PrairiePride. This beer boasts Alberta barley from Antler Valley Farms as well as Alberta Wheat. It is malted in Alberta at Rahr Malting and Red Shed Malting, hopped with Alberta grown cascade Northern Girl hops, brewed in Alberta with Alberta water and incorporates our very own Alberta wild yeast captured on Keller Farms and cultivated in the Olds College Brewmaster Lab. It is even packaged with our Cask Canning machine which is also proudly made in Alberta! This is our #PrairiePride.The beer is light and dry! It delivers spicy, wild, saison style notes thanks to the locally captured yeast. The visible wheat haze promises fantastic body and a smooth mouth feel.

Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day 2018 welcomed women from the local beer industry to brew with us for the fourth year in a row! This year's brew is a Double IPA with a big nose and huge taste. We've hopped at every step with Cascade, Palisade, Chinook , Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra for a beer that is worthy of its name. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we have enjoyed brewing and canning it for you! A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer are used to establish the Pink Boots Bursary.

White Wine Saison   (3.67/5)

Our head brewer, Lisa wanted to make a saison reminiscent of the subtle characteristics of white wine grapes. We used Huell Melon and Hallertau Blanc hops, which impart the fruity notes Lisa was looking for. We've also used Rocky Mountain malt from Red Shed Malting to impart a unique malt flavour. Enjoy!

Protest Pale   (3.92/5)

On the 50th anniversary of this iconic event, we’ve gathered for the first ever LGBTQ+ industry collaboration in Alberta to release a juicy, sessionable, hazy pale ale. We are celebrating the bravery of Marsha P. Johnson and remembering that Pride started as and continues to be a protest. Boasting a smooth pillowy body, very low bitterness, and a powerful citrus flavour profile from Citra and Mandarina Bavaria hops, you’ll be doing a double take to make sure you didn’t pick out a can of orange juice to accompany you in your Pride celebrations this summer!

Rye Porter   (3.7/5)

We set out to make a porter like no other. A porter that wasn't too sweet but rather somewhat spicy. What better way to add spice than to add a healthy dose of rye malt! You will find this beer to be a great companion to the cooler fall nights in Alberta.
