About Prairie Dog Brewing

Located at 105D 58 Ave SE Calgary, Our 200-seat brewpub is fun and bohemian with a family-friendly, come-as-you-are attitude in a conversation-friendly atmosphere, and boasts open-air views into our microbrewery and large, open kitchen pass. Our food is made from scratch with Alberta ingredients, and focus on Texas-style barbecue, with meats and vegetables smoked and slow roasted in Clifford, our big red barbecue pit from Mesquite, Texas (the biggest BBQ pit of its kind in Canada). Check out our menu here.

We are training our staff to become Cicerone Beer Servers, and we will focus on keeping a large variety of our own beers on tap as well as a few other great options, beer and non-beer. Come on out!

Coconut Brown Ale   (3.64/5)

Jitter Bear   (3.75/5)

Our Little Bear Kölsch recipe infused with a custom blend of cold-brew coffee by Typeface Coffee Roasters, which brings milk chocolate, toffee and caramel notes to the beer – no harsh coffee bitterness at all. Tastes like a Coffee Crisp bar in a glass.

Little Bear   (3.57/5)


Flavourful but easy drinking, our Kölsch-style ale is clean and crisp with a slightly sweet grainy flavour and a dry finish. Based on the pilsner style, but fermented with ale yeast and lagered for several weeks, this beer has a pleasant, soft and surprisingly refreshing flavour profile that makes it stand tall beside its lager brethren.

Style: Kölsch

ABV: 4.4%    IBU: 23

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 24

Philpott's Honey Chamomile Wheat   (3.72/5)

Silver-medal winner at the 2019 Canadian International Beer Awards for Best Friday Cask!
Hazy, effervescent, full-flavoured, floral and complex. We designed this recipe from the ground up and used a generous addition of chamomile flowers and fresh Alberta Philpott honey to give the beer a unique and tasty flavour profile. Chamomile dominates with a soft honey aroma and a satisfying bready, cracker-like finish from Alberta malts. We used East Kent Golding hops for bittering and at whirlpool to reinforce the floral aroma. Everything comes together to make this a super easy-drinking, delicious summer beer.

Style: Wheat Beer - Other

ABV: 5.6%    IBU: 17

A collaboration with Hubtown Brewery (Okotoks, AB) to celebrate International Women’s Day, 2020, this beer is a uniquely refreshing Belgian-style blonde ale with raspberry and a custom Pink Boots Society blend of American hops. Underlying the fruit and bready malt flavours is a spicy Belgian yeast character.

Oat Of This World   (3.6/5)

Prairie Dog’s take on a pale form of English Mild beer. Extremely sessionable with plenty of body and flavour from oats and other traditional British ingredients, which give subtle hints of toasted coconut. Excellent patio beer!

Similar to aroma with a pleasant malty character and undertone of oats and nuttiness resembling toasted coconut. Some concorde grape undertones, sweeter caramel and peachy character in background

Style: Mild - Other

ABV: 3.8%    IBU: 16

ABV: 7.6%    IBU: 20

Link Back: Supinator Doppelbock - Brewed In Calgary AB

Orange Is the New Blond   (3.78/5)

Orange is the new blond is a clean and crisp Belgian blond ale full of spicy and peppery phenolics re-fermented over two separate doses of blood oranges to produce a tart, yet slightly sweet, citrus blast. It pours an eye-catching ruby red colour with a slight haze that drinks very smoothly, bursting with notes of oranges, grapefruit, and a hint of raspberries. Our follow-up brew to the very popular Berry Manly is sure to hold its own amongst the fruit beer lovers out there so let’s squeeze every last drop out of this year’s patio season and grab a pint of this refreshing treat.

Style: Fruit Beer

ABV: 6.8%    IBU: 14

EDM   (3.66/5)

With a straight-forward name for its straight-forward nature, EDM is a working class beer that was crafted to be sessionable, smooth, and very easy drinking. The use of English pale malt, along with a mix of 5 other specialty malts, creates a malt-forward beverage that highlights flavours of toast, toffee, dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee. Along with this comes a creamy and sustaining off-white head thanks to the addition of flaked oats and wheat.

Style: Mild - Other

ABV: 3%    IBU: 18

Harvest Pale Ale (2021)   (3.74/5)

A fresh hopped (wet-hopped) beer showcasing local Water Valley Hops - from vine to whirlpool in less than 6 hours! While we always aim to showcase local ingredients in our products, with this beer we get to show off an awesome ingredient that a lot of people don’t realize are grown right here in Alberta. With a malt bill specifically designed to draw attention to the aromas and flavours of the hops this is a sought out beer style for many craft beer lovers in North America.

Style: Pale Ale - American

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 42

Sunset Series Episode 1   (4.07/5)

This experimental saison is a hazy-brown escape that sends you on an island getaway filled with tropical fruit.
