About Cold Garden Beverage Company

Cold Garden Beverage Company is a Calgary-based microbrewery. A love of craft beer and a passing comment in a university classroom planted the idea years ago and the concept has been growing ever since. The brewery has put down roots in the vibrant community of Inglewood, hoping to breathe new life into what was once the brewing district of Calgary. Cold Garden brings a casual and eclectic vibe to the community, along with a lineup of traditional and more...eccentric beers.

This Must Be the IPA   (3.73/5)

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 6%    IBU: 69

Link Back: This Must Be the IPA - Brewed In Calgary AB

Cakeface   (3.65/5)

A Märzen style lager brewed with real vanilla beans. This beer has a pronounced malty sweet base teeter tottering with a touch of floral, noble hops. The malty base goes on to perform a clown ballet with the vanilla beans resulting in a flavor
reminiscent of a birthday cake. An extended lagering process makes this a light drinking session and/or dessert beer. DISCLAIMER: No clowns were harmed in the brewing of CakeFace.

Style: Märzen

ABV: 5.1%    IBU: 25

The All-Nighter Vanilla Cappuccino Porter   (3.93/5)

Robust Porter with a dominant roasted malt backbone, brewed with milk sugar, vanilla beans, and cold pressed coffee from Rebel Bean Coffee added in at kegging. With just enough English hops to balance out the beverage, this is like drinking a coffee cake that can give you more than one kind of buzz. Drink it as the sun goes down and again as the sun comes up.

Style: Porter - Coffee

ABV: 5.8%    IBU: 23

One Summer In Saskatoon   (3.58/5)

A farmhouse style Saison brewed with Saskatoon berries. The beer has a kiss of spice up front but moves quickly to a sweet and earthy middle with the Saskatoon berries rolling through at the very end. There is a noticeable but not overwhelming Belgian backbone to the brew that brings it all together. This is a perfect pint to drink when taking a break from a hot day chaffing the wheat or mucking the barns.

Style: Farmhouse Ale - Saison

ABV: 6.2%    IBU: 35

Link Back: One Summer In Saskatoon - Brewed In Calgary AB

Red Smashed in Buffalo Jump   (3.54/5)

An unapologetically malt forward Irish Red Ale. This beer takes a sharp detour off the hop highway and focuses instead on the roasted, toasted, sweet, and neat flavors of the malted barley grain. A blend of caramels and roasted barley gives the Red Smashed In a perfect balance of sweetness and roasted kick. There is a fairy dusting of nearly noble English hops sprinkled in as well just so all that flavor didn’t get lonely. See you in Malt-halla!

Style: Red Ale - Irish

ABV: 5.4%    IBU: 30

Dandelion's Blonde   (3.45/5)

The quintessential light bodied American...scratch that... Canadian Blonde Ale. Starts with a touch of upfront malt sweetness that flips to a crisp citrusy finish.

Style: Blonde Ale

ABV: 5.1%    IBU: 18

Link Back: Dandelion's Blonde - Brewed In Calgary AB

East Calgary Lager   (3.47/5)

A Vienna lager with a crisp conventional base. The beer is focused around a toasted malt center and whispers of floral hop flavor and aroma which parlay into a slight malt sweetness that joins the party at the end. This is a lager that rolls with some flavor to it. It can be a gateway beer for the craft averse or a crushable craft lager for the aficionado who needs to come down off a humulone high.

Style: Lager - Vienna

ABV: 5.2%    IBU: 27

Best Friends Pineapple Passion Fruit Hazy Blonde Ale   (3.73/5)

Something Creamy   (3.77/5)

Big berry sweetness over a creamy sweet base and a crisp fruity finish. More satisfying than slapping a clown and tastier than a kiss from Willy Wonka while you stick your head in a Lions mouth. As the greatest beer drinkers on earth, Something Creamy Cream Soda Ale will make you want to run away and join the circus.

Style: Cream Ale

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 17

Juuuuuuuuice   (3.63/5)

A Fruit Juice Colada with a fruity hop essence throughout, this beer is sincerely tropic with a loitering coconut memento on the finish. With a killer body to balance the hop flavour and bitterness, crushing a Juuuuuuuuice is like crushing curls with Arnie on the beach.

Style: IPA - New England / Hazy

ABV: 4.7%    IBU: 21

Smashquatch Pale Ale   (3.33/5)

From the far reaches of Inglewood comes a mythical ancient creature. The Smashquatch Pale Ale. Where the river flows Orange, citrus, stone fruit, spice and pine is where the Smashquatch drinks. With a crisp, pale, straw body and a gentle hop bitterness and flavour The Smashquatch so crushable is gone as quickly as it was there. But now, out of the woods and into the Garden, the Smashquatch has taken up temporary residence in the Cold Garden tasting room.
The Smashquatch Pale Ale was brewed using only 4 ingredients. Water, yeast, Alberta Heritage Select Malt from our neighbours @canadamaltingco, and Sasquatch hops, Canada’s first patented hop variety, from our friends at @hopsconnect. Single Malt and Single Hop and all Canadian.

Style: Pale Ale - American

ABV: 5.4%    IBU: 42

Bastian's Sour Beans   (3.6/5)

A sour oatmeal stout with a punch of sour up front that blends into the roasted, richness of the dark malts this beer is built upon. Like a temperamental luck dragon you float along through clouds of caramel, dried fruit and chocolaty coffee. There is a faint whisper of earthy hop bitterness that co-mingles with the middle and then a light sour zing that dawdles around the finish.

Style: Stout - Other

ABV: 4.8%    IBU: 17
