Style: Pale Ale - New England

ABV: 5.5%    IBU: 44

Link Back: Night Gallery - Brewed In Calgary AB

Wave Pool   (3.79/5)

A tropical inspired IPA that is more fun than a rec centre birthday party!

This gateway IPA is hopped with juicy, tropical hop varietals -- Amarillo, El Dorado and Ekuanot (Equinox) and finished with a yeast that drives the mango, pineapple and stone fruit flavours.

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 6.2%    IBU: 68

Link Back: Wave Pool - Brewed In Calgary AB

Ring Pop   (4.02/5)

We harnessed the power of a Norwegian Kveik yeast to ferment this beauty fast and hot.  The result is a sexy, hazy golden yellow brew that is a tornado of hops, juice and party.  It smells like a boozy tropical fruit salad!  Pineapple, papaya and melon flavours dominate with a nice touch of red berry provided by the Barbe Rouge and Mosaic hops.

Style: IPA - New England

ABV: 7.2%    IBU: 50

Duotang   (3.76/5)

Nothing represented order more than locking those notes in your paper folder. This delicious dry hopped sour is about taking the power back. Let loose and pucker up!

Style: Sour - Other

ABV: 5%    IBU: 8

Tiffany   (3.58/5)

It's Complicated.

Don’t let the scrunchie fool you, Tiffany likes to let her hair down. Bright pink with a sassy tartness, it's a dance off between our Golden Ale and red wine grapes. The result is a bone dry, crazily crushable, dangerous lover friend.

Style: Farmhouse Ale - Saison

ABV: 8%    IBU: 24

Link Back: Tiffany - Brewed In Calgary AB

Hologram   (3.52/5)

More than meets the eye, this multidimensional dry hopped Belgian White has citrus flavours from every angle. Transforming from lemon-orange hop aromas to real tangerine peel taste, you'll never see a wit the same again.

Style: Wheat Beer - Witbier

ABV: 4.8%    IBU: 15

Link Back: Hologram - Brewed In Calgary AB

Good Morning Vietnamese Coffee Stout   (3.85/5)

So Much Coffee! Strong roasted coffee and chocolate with wood on the back end. Sweet but balanced. Moderate to strong bitterness from heavy hop additions and roasted coffee.

Style: Stout - Coffee

ABV: 6.5%    IBU: 40

Link Back: Good Morning Vietnamese Coffee Stout - Brewed In Calgary AB

Fruity Pebbles   (3.82/5)

Triple Berry Milkshake Sour IPA. Brewed with milk sugar and then soured with various lacto strains, we added equal parts raspberry, blackberry and blueberry puree to the fermentation and the dry hopped heavily with Idaho 7.

Style: Sour - Fruited

ABV: 6.9%    IBU: 37

Link Back: Fruity Pebbles - Brewed In Calgary AB

Double Dare   (3.87/5)

This recipe was born out of '88 love for humongous West Coast IPA’s. Its forward, aggressive and maybe even a bit brash. This is the bad influence. Go for it! What’s the worst that could happen…

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double

ABV: 7.7%    IBU: 88

Link Back: Double Dare - Brewed In Calgary AB

Hammer Pants   (3.78/5)

Get your dancing shoes on folks! Hammer Pants is a classic, double dry hopped, West Coast Pale Ale that has long been our taproom go to for being a delicious and clean expression of the style. Finally available in cans, this beer uses Amarillo as a base hop with heavy additions of Mosaic and Ella which brighten the corners and round out the prominent flavours of pine, stonefruit and citrus. The subtle bitterness and clean finish make this a ridiculously easy drinking go-to for pretty much anyone.

Style: Pale Ale - American

ABV: 4.8%    IBU: 35

Summer Camp Crush   (3.87/5)

Sangria Sour!
Collab with Camp Brand Goods.

Style: Sour - Fruited

ABV: 5.3%    IBU: 10

Link Back: Summer Camp Crush - Brewed In Calgary AB

Warp Whistle   (4.08/5)

Nearly two hundred pounds of locally sourced Alberta honey were used to create the backbone of this Honey Hazy Double IPA. Add in some amazing specialty malt from our good friends at Origin Malting and you have yourself a punchy, creamy and undeniably memorable jooos bomb! Mango, Orange and of course honey hit you up front and as you play it fades to just the right amount of sweet with low bitterness, and an ultra creamy mouth feel. This beer is magic and one we are hyper excited to share. Best suited for adventures, alternate worlds & hidden treasure, this whistle is going to take you places!

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double New England

ABV: 8.4%    IBU: 41

Dial Up   (3.91/5)

Dial Up has long been a staff favourite for its more balanced and sessionable approach. It has a slightly tweaked malt bill from our usual hazy stash, it’s more medium bodied, and it has perfect balance between bitter and sweet. Hopped at 10g/L with Hallertau Blanc, El Dorado and Cascade it has amazing aromas of passionfruit, pear and pineapple, but finishes heavy on the citrus. In short, it’s lovely and worth the wait.

Style: IPA - New England

ABV: 6.5%    IBU: 38

Monster Truck Lite   (3.65/5)

This Pils is a little nod to those dad beers of the 80’s, but tuned up to be extra crisp and extremely crushable!

Brewed with 100% pilsner malt, dry hopped Italian style with Hallertau Blanc / Hallertau Mittelfrueh and fermented on a Northern German yeast to finish as crisp and dry as possible. This beer is ultra-refreshing with a super soft bitterness.

Style: Pilsner - Other

ABV: 4.3%    IBU: 25

Hacky Sack   (3.58/5)

Join the hacky circle!!

This year we are celebrating neighbor day with one the OG’s of the Calgary craft beer scene & community building pioneers @villagebrewing aaaaand we have delightful pilsner with a twist to share with y’all!

Brewed with straight up pilsner malt profile, and hopped with Colombus, Motueka and Hersbruker hops we added lemons to the party to play up the acidity and citrus punch. Finally we dry hopped Hersbruker hops and super special guest star Kaffir lime leaves to add some tropical flare and a nice old school floral quality that all iconic pilsners are known for!

Style: Pilsner - German

ABV: 4.9%    IBU: 26

Sticky Bandits   (4.09/5)

Meet Sticky Bandits, a mammoth 10% triple west coast IPA. This delight is like Double Dare’s handsome older brother (think Brand from Goonies).

We took a very large classic west coast back bone and treated it with loads of late kettle additions of Galaxy, Cryo Amarillo, and Cryo Mosaic. We then dry hopped at a rather aggressive 10g/L with same combo which has driven the armoas to points of literal madness. Extremely well balanced, its dank, oily, & juicy, with bright citrus, passion fruit and red berry notes. It’s a pleasure to behold and yes at 10%, you will feel it.

Style: IPA - Triple

ABV: 10%    IBU: 76

Link Back: Sticky Bandits - Brewed In Calgary AB

Double Night Gallery   (4.13/5)

Similar to Night Gallery, this beer uses a blend of Citra, Simcoe and Ekuanot hops, but in the case of Double Night Gallery we we also layered in incognito hops, cyro hops, dip hopping and double dry hopping to push the bitterness wayyyy down and the aromatics to legendary status. All your familiar friends are there; grapefruit, mandarin, pine, cotton candy, and peach, but if you can believe it they are somehow sexier than ever before!

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double New England

ABV: 8%    IBU: 40

Power Wheels   (4.09/5)

Open this brew and the room will be filled with heavy mango, citrus and a touch of pine! Power Wheels drinks (too) easy, ending with a nice soft finish.
Brewed with the hard to procure Mosaic INCOGNITO (CO2 extracted hop resin), it's meant to solve the age old problem of how to jam in even more hop flavor without the typical pitfalls of going a wee bit too far, notably hop burn or grassy flavors.
Power Wheels, a hilariously hopped all Mosaic Hazy IPA with INCOGNITO, T90 and cryo Mosaic used through the entire process and then heavily dry hopped with Mosaic and cryo Mosaic. Should we say Mosaic one more time. MOSAIC!!

Style: IPA - New England

ABV: 6.3%    IBU: 30

Great Outdoors   (3.86/5)

Great Outdoors is a decidedly West Coast IPA that has the pine level turned wayyyyy up thanks to a large edition of locally sourced (and lovingly picked!) spruce tips. We actually brewed the first version of this beer over two years ago and are very excited that we have finally be able to remake it, applying a bunch of the tricks we have picked up along the way!

Brewed to embrace the bitterness, this beer was also aggressively hopped the classic west coast “C” hops, Columbus, Cascade and Centennial. The result is a very clean and crisp IPA with pronounced bitterness and very forward notes of citrus and pine! It’s a refreshing departure from the hazy train and it packs a very real punch.

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 7%    IBU: 50

Link Back: Great Outdoors - Brewed In Calgary AB

Danger Zone   (3.93/5)

We are shovin’ into overdrive with a delicious new small batch westy! Danger Zone harkens back to the good ole days of West Coast IPAs, beers that sting you with a hop punch.
In terms of fancy big, boozy, bitter tech, this beer showcases hop hash quite heavily. Hop hash is a highly concentrated form of Lupulin (the acids and oils that drive flavor and aroma) that is captured during the processing of hops. In our case we used Centennial and Azacca hop hash to drive up the pine and citrus and then we finished with a huge dry hop of Azacca, Centennial, and Pacific Jade to double down on the dank and a bit of tropical flare!

Style: IPA - American

ABV: 7.5%    IBU: 68

Link Back: Danger Zone - Brewed In Calgary AB

Soft Serve   (3.9/5)

This beer is our most oatiest hazy to date with over 50% of the malt bill being made up of oats. And yes, you will definitely notice the thickness of dem oats. For hops we opted for Cashmere, Sabro and Cryo Sabro with a very large dry hop of over 30g/L. To round things out even more we added milk sugar during the brewing process and let everything ferment on a big dose of vanilla. The result is a very smooth, quite dank and delightfully sweet potion that actually pulls more tropical than anything else. Lots of pineapple, mango and melon up front with a kick of citrus and vanilla to finish things off. It may not have sprinkles, but for a limited time the sundae bar is open!

Style: IPA - Imperial / Double

ABV: 8.5%    IBU: 30

Link Back: Soft Serve - Brewed In Calgary AB

Pillow Talk   (4.17/5)

We played heavily with the water profile on this one and trialed an excellent new Alberta grown wheat which has a higher protein content than normal. We think this, combined with a heavy hand of flaked oats has pushed an even juicier, heavier body. On the hops side of things we choose Cashmere and Idaho 7 hops at equal ratios and dry hopped at 11 grams per litre. Cashmere has imparted a nice lemon and peach aroma and the Idaho 7 keeps things tropical and adds a welcome dankness on the finish!

Style: IPA - New England

ABV: 6.5%    IBU: 30

Leisure Center   (4.13/5)

For Leisure Center we've used multiple types of hop technologies with several hopping techniques to achieve very high dry hopping rates, huge aromas, and juicy flavors while minimizing grassy notes and vegetal flavors. Technically, this hopping rate would be 3x bigger than anything we've done yet! 30 grams per liter!! This beer uses the same water profile from Pillow Talk and even creamier malt bill with several different varieties of oats. Then cometh the hops! We started with heavy whirlpool additions of Ekuanot Incognito, Citra Incognito, and Citra Cryo and after the whirlpool, we performed a DIP hop which is essentially steeping the hops before pushing into the fermenter.

Style: IPA - New England

ABV: 6.3%    IBU: 35

Fun Dip   (3.83/5)

Fun Dip is a session strength Hazy IPA that was created to be enjoyed in numbers. This beer features a classic hazy malt bill and super soft water profile but the real trick with this beer is it mashed at a high temperatures finish with a big body, despite its lower ABV or 4.3%.

No-boil hops were used, but a pile of Eclipse, El Dorado, and Cascade were used in the whirlpool and dry hop which has pushed plenty of citrus, peach, and blackberry notes. Finally, it was fermented hot with our house Kveik yeast which throws heavy pineapple. It all comes together to form a big body, smooth drinking, low ABV IPA. Yum.

Style: IPA - New England

ABV: 4.3%    IBU: 25

Pretty In Pink   (3.66/5)

Vodka Soda Collaboration with Confluence Distilling, its not beer but its freaking delish!
